To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives of the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia Assembled.

The petition of citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that they are totally opposed to disbanding the fixed wing element of the Naval Fleet Air Arm and respectfully request that existing Naval Aviation be retained pending an inquiry into the legitimacy of the defence figures produced by the Department of Defence and further, respectfully submit that it is not logical to take savings in Australia's Navy Defence while continuing military aid to Indonesia.

Your petitioners, therefore, humbly pray that your humble house will agree to reconsider the decision of disbanding the fixed wing element of the Naval Fleet Air Arm pending an inquiry into the legitimacy of the Defence Department figures .

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
