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

The petition of residents of the State of Victoria draws attention to the House concerns over the proposal to abolish the Administrative Appeals Tribunal to be replaced by the Administrative Review Tribunal.

This proposed legislation will disadvantage many workers and their families and is legislation solely designed to protect and look after the employer.

Your petitioners therefore request that the powers of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal as enshrined in the Safety Rehabilitation & Compensation Act 1988 be preserved and that the proposed changes to this Act be rejected.

by Mr Kelvin Thomson (from 246 citizens).
