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

That the anomalous Fringe Benefits tax is iniquitous, inequitable and unfair on the grounds that-

it adversely affects business throughout Australia, including farms,

by creating a further tax burden it destroys incentive,

it has caused unemployment,

it is costly to administer and its complexities have caused confusion and widespread anger.

Your Petitioners therefore humbly pray that the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled should immediately seek the repeal of Labor's Fringe Benefits tax legislation.

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