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

The humble petition of the undersigned electors of the Division of Bass respectfully showeth:

1. That as loyal Australian citizens and residents, we strongly object to increased availability of pornographic material particularly through the Video medium.

2. That in particular we object to the ready availability of material under the X-rated classification.

3. That we believe such material is damaging to our society and is degrading to the dignity of man.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Commonwealth Government will not allow the introduction of an X-rating for Video Tapes/Discs for Sale/Hire in Australia.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
