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

That we are concerned at the proposed withdrawal of Federal Funding from pre-school education. This is 20 per cent of the pre-school budget. Thus it will be difficult to maintain existing programmes and impossible to provide pre-school education for those children not receiving it now. We urge the Commonwealth Government of Australia to maintain this funding.

And your petitioners in duty bound will ever pray.
