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

We the undersigned request that the Government take action to preserve bulkbilling and to strengthen the Medicare system.

The cessation of bulkbilling by many general practitioners as a direct result of government policy has caused great hardship to many local residents on low incomes particularly the elderly and those with young children.

Your petitioners request that the House of Representatives introduce legislation to ensure that bulkbilling is preserved and that our Medicare system is strengthened.

by Ms Hall (from 40 citizens).
