To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled.

The humble petition of we, the undersigned citizens of Australia, respectfully showeth:

In the pursuance of justice and fair play, the government's taxation portion must be removed from the home purchasers time payments and transferred to a small levy or taxation deduction from all wages and income in all aspects, including the home purchasers and not this grossly unfair crippling procedure that exists today.

From the foundations to the last coat of paint, interest and inflation expectations are applied to the family homes with interest rates of unreasonable magnitude to the completed structure.

Truly, this is a national monetary obligation, particularly in as far as the home purchaser is concerned and a major cause of wage demands and the grass roots of inflation.

We therefore humbly pray that your House take urgent action to apply such a percentage levy or taxation.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
