Mr HAMER (ISAACS, VICTORIA) - I present the following petition:

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition ofresidents of Mordialloc and Parkdale in Victoria, respectfully sheweth:

That the new Australian grant of $1.5m to Pakistan refugees in India is completely inadequate and does not recognise the true value of the situation. Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Government will immediately grant a further $10m in aid to Pakistan refugees and use all diplomatic channels available to urge the creation of a political climate in East Pakistan which will enable the nine million refugees in India to return to their homeland.

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

Petition received and read.
