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

That the current shortage of housing in the Australian Capital Territory is causing extreme hardship for low income earners to an extent never before experienced in the Territory, and that Havelock House provides ideal accommodation for these people.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray:

That the decision by the Minister for Administrative Services to allocate Havelock House to the Australian Federal Police for use as office space be rescinded and that Havelock House be made available to the community for use as low-cost accommodation.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
