To the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives as assembled in parliament:

The petition of the undersigned citizens shows that if TCF tariffs are further reduced after 2005, the Australian TCF industry will suffer further job losses and closures which adversely affect the Australian economy and society.

Your petitioners request that the Parliament should agree to freeze the tariffs at their current levels until it is proven that any reduction is in the interests of Australian workers. Tariff should remain frozen until our major trading partners reduce their tariff and non-tariff barriers to Australia's levels.

by Mr Sidebottom (from 2,415 citizens)
