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

The Labor Government's policy of automatically increasing the excise applying to beer increases the price of beer, eliminates the opportunity for public or parliamentary debate on a tax increase, perpetuates inflation, reduces job opportunities in the hotel and brewing industries.

Your petitioners therefore urge the Government to immediately repeal those laws which automatically increase the excise on beer when the C.P.I. increases.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
