To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens respectfully showeth:

(1) That the recent mini-budget formulated by the Commonwealth government contains substantial cuts for pre-school services.

(2) That such cuts are detrimental to the interests of the children undergoing pre-school education and to the interests of their parents.

(3) That reductions in expenditure in this area represent a misallocation of priorities with respect to government expenditure.

(4) That we demand the restitution of previously announced levels of funding to the pre-school sector of education.

And your petitioners in duty bound will ever pray.
