To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned employees of the shoe manufacturing industry in Ballarat, Victoria, respectfully showeth:

That the recommendations of the Industries Assistance Commission contained in its draft report will inevitably lead to the total destruction of the shoe manufacturing industry, cause widespread unemployment and seriously affect our way of life in this city.

That employment is not easy to find in centres such as Ballarat and relocation would cause extreme hardship on our families.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the House urge the Government to retain a viable shoe manufacturing industry in Australia.

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

Petition received.
