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

That (a) the export of live animals for slaughter overseas and (b) the shipment of live horses to Japan sentences such animals to cruel and inhumane treatment in the export process and at the hands of foreign importers.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the House will request the Government to ban the export of live animals for food and allow only carcass trade.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
