To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectively showeth that:

1. the Hawke Government's retirement income policies are piecemeal, inconsistent and make no provision to encourage people to save towards their retirements; and

2. the Government's proposed assets test legislation is iniquitous and, if enacted, its effects would be discriminatory.

Your petitioners humbly pray that the members of the House of Representatives, in Parliament assembled institute a retirement income policy which is fair and equitable, that encourages self-provision and which will be non-discriminatory.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
