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

The Petition of the undersigned shows:

We are gravely concerned by the threat to social morality and the welfare of children, posed by the unrestricted importation, distribution and sale of X-rated pornography video material in and from the Australian Capital Territory.

Your Petitioners request that the House of Representatives, in Parliament assembled, should recognise our concern and reverse its amendments to ACT legislation and Customs regulations which have resulted in Australia wide distribution of material restricted under State censorship laws.

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