Mr WALLIS (GREY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I present the following petition:

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the electors of Grey respectfully sheweth:

That strong resentment exists amongst members of the Kimba district and surrounding areas at the failure of the Federal Government to assist financially with the construction of the LockKimba pipe line in South Australia.

Failure to have the pipe line constructed in the shortest possible time could place many farmers in the area in a position that will make it impossible to diversify their activities into more viable areas of rural production.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that -

The Federal Government re-examine its decision in order that the completion of the Lock-Kimba pipe line can be expedited andby doing so alleviate the hardships experienced in the area by lack of an available and reticulated water supply.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received and read.

Telecommunication Divisional Office at Parkes
