To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled.

The Petition of the undersigned draws the attention of Senators to the fact that Tasmania has three separate regional telephone directories (combined White and Yellow Rages). Considering Tasmania's small population we the undersigned believe this situation is both impractical and unnecessarily costly to the consumer.

Your Petitioners request that the Senate ask The Minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts to consider the proposal of merging Tasmania's existing three telephone directories into two state-wide books; one for the White Pages and the other for the Yellow Pages.

by Senator Sherry (from 1,802 citizens).
