To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of Parliament assembled. The humble petition of these electors showeth that as:

In Australia, tobacco kills about four times as many people as the total killed by drink, drugs, murder, suicide, road accidents, rail accidents, air accidents, poisoning, drowning, fires, snakes, lightning, and every other known cause of accidental death all put together.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that you will prove your worth with effectual action against the promotion of tobacco.

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