Senator WHEELDON (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Repatriation and Compensation) - I present the following petition from 16 citizens of the Commonwealth:

To the Federal National Parliament of Australia by Pensioners and the Public who do care to be presented to the House of Representatives (Lower House) and the House of the Senate (Upper House), to the Honourable Speaker of each House, we ask as members of the Public that:

A Nationalized Government and Private transport system be established. that Pensioners transport be made free within the Federation where the Government has constitutional powers, to make all Government and Private transport free within the Federation to Pensioners and all other underpriviledged members of the community.

Although the pension has been increased by $1.50 the high cost of living has effectively made this increase worthless, consequently the above actions are considered to require urgent National Government Action.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received and read.
