To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. We the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully believing that:

There is demonstrated evidence of a need for child care facilities by staff, users, and potential users of the National Library of Australia and surrounding buildings in Parkes, ACT;

There are at present no such existing facilities;

Provision has already been made for inclusion of the facilities in planned extensions to the Library,

Humbly petition that your honourable House reverse the decision by the Minister of Home Affairs and Environment disallowing provision for child care facilities in the extensions to the National Library of Australia.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
