To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that many Australians are concerned with the inadequacy of Overseas Aid tax deductibility for citizens in this country.

Foster Parents Plan of Australia is contributing $3,000,000 in Asia, Africa, Central and South America to give relief in terms of Medical, Health, Clean Water, Education, Community Development, and new hope to help people to help themselves.

More than 11,000 families are being supported by Australians, and we therefore respectfully request that the Commonwealth Government provide some incentive to encourage the people in our country, in making contributions to Foster Parents Plan for tax concessions for overseas funds, as are already provided for charities working within this country of Australia.

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

Petition received.
