To the Honourable the President and the members of the Senate in the Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned electors of the Commonwealth of Australia respectfully showeth that:

(1) Australians are offended by taxation evasion and welfare fraud which has the effect of increasing the taxation burden of honest Australians.

(2) The community has shown its overwhelming support for the Government's decision to proceed with a national identification system known as the Australia Card.

Your petitioners therefore pray that your honourable Senate will: continue the fight against taxation evasion and welfare fraud and restore fairness and equity to the tax and welfare systems by supporting the Australia Card Bill.
