The Honourable the President and members of the Senate of the Parliament of Australia assembled.

We, the undersigned, plead that Parliament will legislate, or act in accordance with the present legislation to replace the current members of the Film Censorship Board who have admitted to Senator Harradine on 12th December, 1984 as reported in the Senate Select Committee on Video Material (see attached extracts), that they are not applying either the blasphemy or obscenity tests as required under the provisions of the Customs (Cinematograph Films) Regulations, and that these persons be replaced by persons who will apply these and the other related test in accordance with the said Regulations.

Your petitioners humbly pray that you will give this matter your earnest consideration.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
