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

We deplore the proposed cut-back of funding for preschool 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. We urge you to reserve the proposed cuts in children's services.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
