To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that:

1. The proposal of the Right Honourable the Federal Treasurer to impose increased taxation on superannuation payments is iniquitous and threatens the planned security and retirement lifestyle of all prudent employees.

2. The problem of 'double dipping' as defined by the Treasurer is more fairly dealt with by consideration of the assets of prospective applicants for old age pensions.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that Parliament will rescind this proposal to increase the taxation on superannuation.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
