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

The humble petition of certain citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that many people in Australia are currently being denied appropriate psychological help because they cannot afford private health insurance. Rebates for psychological services within the Medicare system would enable all persons, regardless of financial and social status, to receive appropriate psychological assistance.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that Parliament will give consideration to the inclusion of psychological services within the Medicare Scheme.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
