To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament:

The petition of the undersigned shows that there is a need to end the current discriminatory application of sales tax on confectionery and to end the other anomalies existing in sales tax law. Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Senate in Parliament assembled supports a change in existing legislation so that this tax can be replaced by a broad-based consumption tax with a uniform ad valorem rate without any exemptions whatsoever.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
