(b) Further, we request the Commonwealth Government to retain the surplus Grumman Tracker Aircraft (approximately 17) and associated spares, for the purposes of conversion to firefighting aircraft for use on the above project.

And your petitioners humbly pray that your Honourable House will respond to our plea.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
