(1)   That every human being has the right to sufficient food, clothing and shelter.

(2)   That Australia as one of the world's rich countries has the capacity to render considerable economic assistance to the developing countries.

We therefore humbly ask:

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