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

The petition of certain electors of the Division of Lyne draws to the attention of the House that the Australian Broadcasting Authority did not grant a permanent broadcasting licence to Manning Great Lakes Christian Broadcasting Inc.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the House will intervene on our behalf to have a permanent licence granted to Manning Great Lakes Christian Broadcasting Inc. 79% of the local population are Christians and the station has been on air with a temporary licence for over two years with the last 22 months being 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. This temporary licence ceased at midnight on Tuesday, 30th November, 1999.

by Mr Vaile (from 631 citizens).
