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

`No Cuts for Kids'!

We deplore the proposed cut-back of funding for pre-school and child care in the mini-budget as the proposal adversely affects young families, women's employment prospects and children's development in their most formative years.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Senate in Parliament assembled should:

Reverse proposals for cuts in children's services.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
