To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The petition of certain citizens of the Federal Division of Fisher in Queensland respectfully showeth:

That the Hawke Socialist Government be called upon to remove the unjust and cruel Assets Test;

That the Assets Test discriminates grossly against those people living on acreage blocks or in rural areas;

That the introduction of the Government's grab for the assets of senior citizens is condemned as un-Australian;

That the Government is requested to reconsider the Assets Test.

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