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

We the undersigned citizens of Australia, residents of the City of Whyalla, in the State of South Australia, hereby petition the Prime Minister as Leader of the Australian Labor Party in Government and humbly showeth that:

The voting public of the Grey Electorate did in March 1983 and again in December 1984, vote as a majority for the election of a Labor Government who claimed to stand for a Multicultural Australia.

Your petitioners call on the Australian Labor Government to implement multicultural television in the City of Whyalla and other country areas, without any further delays.

We declare that the implementation could become possible by;

1. Broadcasting Multicultural Television in the ABC, at morning times or;

2. SBS Transmitter to be connected to the Australian Satellite-thus providing a Multicultural Television service all over our nation.

Both of these options have been proposed to the ABC Advisory Council (SA) at a recently held Whyalla Public Meeting.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
