Senator REID —by leave-I present the following petition, which is not in conformity with Standing Orders, from 770 petitioners requesting that the Senate oppose the Australian Capital Territory Teachers Federation policy of active non-co-operation with the staff and students of non-government schools:

Dear Mr President, and honourable members of the Australian Senate:

We, the undersigned, wish to express our grave concern in relation to the A.C.T. Teacher's Federation's newly adopted policy of active non-co-operation with the staff and students of non-government schools. This policy will affect the community at all levels, sporting and non-sporting interschool competition as well as the proposed boycott of the combined curriculum development meeting.

We feel that this policy can only be detrimental to all A.C.T. students-those attending government and non-government schools alike, and would appreciate your support and concern.
