To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned electors of the Commonwealth respectfully showeth:

1.   That in his Policy Speech prior to the last elections the Rt Hon. the Prime Minister said, 'We stand by our commitment to abolish the means test on pensions'.

2.   That at the time it was generally considered that this statement of the Prime Minister's was something more than an empty form of words.

3.   That since the last election, there has been no action by the Government towards the abolition of the means test.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that your Honourable House, prior to its dissolution, will ask the Prime Minister to make a definite statement as to what action he proposes to take, and when he proposes to take it, towards the abolition of the means test

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray. by Mr Wentworth.

Petition received.
