Senator BAUME - I present the following petition from 25 citizens of Australia:

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. The Petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth:

We, the undersigned, wish to lodge our objection to the passing of the New Family Law Bill, suggesting- Easier Divorce, No Innocent Party as regards Court Costs, or Maintenance for the Wife.

In our opinion it takes at least 3 years to consolidate a marriage and every effort should be made to make it work, with equal responsibilities on both sides. Children of all ages should be able to feel the security of a complete family and we should be looking to this most of all.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received.
