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

We the undersigned, are deeply concerned that Australia's important horticultural indsutry is being severly disadvantaged by unnecessarily rising production costs.

Many Federal and State Government regulations, excessive taxes and charges are damaging the ability of horticultural growers to maintain supplies of food and plant products to Australian families at a realistic cost. Widespread unemployment will result if horticultural producers are further depressed.

The undersigned humbly petition the Parliaments of Australia, its States and Territories, to take all measures within their powers to reduce the burden of imposed costs and regulation, allowing Australian horticultural growers to develop production potential so the nation, as a whole, can share the benefits of the resulting growth and prosperity.

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