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

The Petition of the undersigned shows we are opposed to the Government's funding cuts to Centrelink, which will mean the loss of 5,000 Centrelink jobs.

This staff cut will mean increased waiting times, reduced access and reduced service levels for clients.

It will place more stress on an already understaffed and underfunded service.

It is an attack on our right to an efficient and accessible social security system.

Your petitioners request that the House of Representatives should stop the Centrelink staff cuts.

by Ms Hall (from 40 citizens).
