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

The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that:

The fringe benefits tax will cause hardship to business throughout Australia, especially in the already severely-depressed rural sector and in the motor vehicle industry.

The fringe benefits tax will be a disincentive to employment and worse, will result in additional unemployment.

The economy of this country would best be served by policies that lightened the tax burden, not increased it, that encouraged enterprise, not stifled it and stimulated growth, development and jobs, not prevented it.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the House will repeal this legislation and your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
