To the Honourable the Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

  Having regard to the proposal of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation to alter the format of the Country Hour to a single national programme; the valuable community service provided by the Country Hour; the role of the Country Hour in extending agricultural research extension, market and weather information to farmers on a local basis and the need for local rather than national information.

  Your petitioners therefore pray that your Honourable House will:

  Call on the Federal Government to ensure that the Country Hour is retained in its present form with predominantly State and localised input to retain its relevance to the farming community.

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