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

The petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House the need for more general practitioners in their residential area to replace those lost through retirement or relocation.

Your petitioners therefore ask the House to support their petition through the following measures:

The release of more provider numbers for general practitioners;

Increase the Medicare payment rebates and bulk billing fees in line with inflation.

by Mr Bartlett (from 502 citizens).
