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

That in the light of the Labor Government's proposal to bring about a reduction in the amount payable under the present Family Allowance Scheme, that the House of Representatives assembled oppose such a move, on the evidence of its impact upon the family unit.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled should immediately seek to restore payments to the former level.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
