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

The necessity to restore the preschool block grant of 33 million and to reinstate the Child care subsidies which have been reduced by 30 million-without which there will be adverse affect on young families, women's employment prospects and children's Development in their most formative years.

Your Petitioners therefore pray that your Honourable Senate will restore the preschool block grant and reinstate the Child care subsidies for the benefit of all Australians.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
