Senator JESSOP - I present the following petition from 206 citizens of the Commonwealth:

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament asembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of the Commonwealth respectifully showeth:

(1)   That Australian citizens place great value on their freedom to choose their own doctor in all aspects of medical care.

(2)   That we believe in a doctor's freedom to provide a personal service based on personal responsibility within a system based on quality rather than quantity, as opposed to an impersonal service in which doctor and patient lose their identity.

(3)   That proposals to change the existing health scheme are unacceptable to the people of Australia

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received and read.
