Mr CHIPP (HOTHAM, VICTORIA) (Minister for Customs and Excise) - I present the following petition:

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of residents ofVictoria, respectfully sheweth:

That the Australian Government grant a further $10m immediate aid to the East Pakistani refugees in India. Your petitioners also humbly pray that the Australian Government take the initiative in urging the instatement of Sheik Mujibur Rahman as the elected leader of his people and the creating of a political climate which will enable the refugees now in India to make a speedy, safe return to their own country.

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

Petition received.
