To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. The petition of certain citizens of Tasmania shows:

(a) We are shocked and disappointed at the Federal Government's decision not to upgrade the Wynyard Airport.

(b) This decision will inevitably lead to downgrading and closure of the Wynyard Airport.

(c) Closure of Wynyard Airport will cause grave hardship and inconvenience to the people of the North West and West Coast regions of Tasmania.

(d) We urge the Federal Government to immediately reverse this disastrous decision.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
