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

1. That governments have a responsibility to maintain standards acceptable to society's wishes.

2. 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 video films and video tapes and category 1 printed material.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
