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.

1. The concerns which people around the World have for the increasing stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction;

2. The global concern that any nuclear exchange will inflict on humanity unimaginable death and suffering;

3. The vulnerability that Australians will face in any nuclear conflict between the major powers;

4. The public concern that Government should explore all avenues to ensure that the nuclear threat is eliminated.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Australian Parliament establish a Select Committee on Nuclear Disarmament and Peace to investigate the creation of a Ministry of Peace and Nuclear Disarmament.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
