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

The Hawke Labor Government's ID Card proposal is the most far reaching and intrusive piece of Australian legislation ever, and that on all the evidence available, it will not tackle in the most cost-efficient and effective manner tax and social security fraud.

Your petitioners humbly pray that the House of Representatives, in Parliament assembled, urge the Government to:

Reject Labor's ID Card proposal to prevent a gross waste of taxpayer's money and a significant infringement of civil liberties.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
