To the Honourable The Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This petition of a certain citizen of Australia draws to the attention of the House: that Centrelink is the most inefficient bureaucracy this citizen has ever encountered.

We therefore ask the House to: begin the process for investigating the utility of privatising Centrelink into three separate companies, each providing the same services and allowing for free movement of customers between them, with contracts with the Government to pay said companies based on customer assessment of service delivery. We also ask that customer payments remain the exclusive domain of the Government, allowing however for the access to, and assessment of, payments to be the domain of private business, in order to achieve the efficiency that we deserve as Australian citizens. We ask that the investigative process include extensive community consultation among Centrelink customers.
