To the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament.

The petition of electors of Batman points out to the House our desire to see community pharmacists retain their unique position in Australia's health system.

We trust and respect our local pharmacists and are opposed to any moves to allow supermarkets to compete against them. We believe that the community benefits from pharmacies being owned by pharmacists.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the House heeds our wishes and allows our local pharmacy to continue to play a vital role in our health care.

by Ms Burke(from 110 citizens)
