To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled, Parliament House, Canberra, A.C.T.

We the undersigned citizens of this district of Pioneer Valley, near Mackay, Queensland, view with great concern the matter recently before the House, wherein your Government passed legislation which will facilitate the procuring of pornographic material of various kinds, including videos and literature.

Most people seem to be convinced that pornography and bad videos are doing great harm to our young people, and we feel that we would be remiss in our duty to them if we did not voice our protest.

Parents have already enough difficulty in protecting their children. Your new law will make their task impossible.

We hope and pray that your Government will see fit to reverse its decision in this matter.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
