To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate assembled. The petition of the undersigned respectfully shows:

1. that governments have responsibility to maintain standards acceptable to society's wishes;

2. that it cannot be guaranteed that X rated video material will not be viewed by children.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the Senate, in Parliament assembled, should not adopt the X Classification for films and Video Tapes, nor Category 2 for Printed material. Further, that tighter restrictions be applied to R rated Films and Video Tapes and Category 1 Printed Material.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
