To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled.

We the undersigned are deeply concerned at the impact of the proposed Australia Card legislation on the following grounds:

1. We believe that it represents potentially undesir-able interference in the lives of honest Australians and is a grave interference in the civil liberties of Australian citizens;

2. That it will not address the problems of tax evasion and social security fraud;

3. That it will create unnecessary expansion of the bureaucracy;

and calls on the Senate to reject the legislation.

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