To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

That we consider the 2% discounting of Commonwealth Occupational Superannuation Scheme pension adjustments on 10 October 1986 to be a serious breach of trust by the Government.

This cut has reduced the base for future adjustments. The Government has promised to restore the base as soon as economic circumstances permit.

Having regard to state of the economy as portrayed by members of the Government during the recent election campaign, your petitioners humbly pray that the Government restore the pension base in the 1987 budget.

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