The Clerk - A petition has been lodged by Mr Jarman as follows and a copy of the petition will be referred to the appropriate Minister:

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled: The humble petition of certain citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

That they are concerned for the protection of human life from the time of conception and are opposed to legalisation of abortion in any part of Australia.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the House oppose any liberalisation of the law on abortion beyond that which is permitted in Victoria at the present time.

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

Petition received.
