To the Honourable the Speaker and Member of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. This petition of undersigned citizens of Australia respect- fully showeth that we strongly oppose the introduction of the `Australia Card' or any other form of National Identification Numbering System.

We believe the introduction of a National Identification Numbering System is not only totally unnecessary but is a severe threat to our civil liberties and privacy. We condemn the Government's actions on this matter, particularly as no reasonable nor responsible justifications for the proposal have been forthcoming from the Government.

We humbly pray that the House of Representatives, in Parliament assembled, should reject any proposal for a National Identification Numbering System.
