That there is widespread community concern about the proposal to irradiate food in Australia

Your petitioners, most humbly pray that the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled, should:

(1) Block the introduction of food irradiation into Australia and

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