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

This petition, of people who are concerned about the low levels of Australian Pensions, draws the attention of the House to the inadequacy of current pensions to provide a decent standard of living for Australian Pensioners. Pensioners need sufficient income to enable them to live healthy lives as active members of their communities, free from the barriers of economic hardship.

We therefore ask the House to increase pension levels so they more adequately reflect today’s costs of living.

by Mrs Irwin (from 108 citizens)
