To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament the petition of the undersigned shows:

Many hens are subjected to inhumane treatment as a result of being kept in extremely small battery cages.

Your petitioners request that the Senate, in Parliament assembled, should:

Ensure that the current ACT Animal Ordinance of 1959 which requires that animals kept in close confinement be exercised daily is enforced.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
