To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled:

The petition of certain citizens of Australia shows that the current discriminatory application of sales tax on confectionery at the rate of 20 per cent is an unfair and unjust burden on this important manufacturing industry and your petitioners therefore pray that confectionery be treated in a similar fashion to all other foods, including snack foods, which are exempt from sales tax.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
