Senator SHEIL (QUEENSLAND) - I present the following petition from 46 citizens of Australia:

To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

The need for Federal Government assistance to the Playgroup Association of Queensland as a part of their preschool education program. As recorded in the minutes of the Annual General Meeting of the Association held on Wednesday, 28 August 1974, the assistance sought is:

(i)   that the Playgroup Association of Queensland be granted Sales Tax Exemption:

(ii)   that Playgroup be recognised as a necessary part of pre-school education and as such all expenses incurred by the parents be an allowable tax deduction;

(iii)   for financial support from your Government.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Government and Senators in Parliament assembled will ensure that due account is taken of this petition and your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

Petition received and read.
