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

That we deplore the discriminatory tax proposals as outlined in the Government's ``White Paper'' and the Government's preferred option on proposed new and widened tax proposals as outlined, namely:

1. Consumption tax on hairdressing services etc.

2. Any other new taxes on business and their proprietors.

Such taxes will discriminate against certain businesses and inhibit progress growth and employment throughout the nation. They will severely inhibit the growth of employment opportunities for young people in the hairdressing industry. They will attack hardworking people who have built up their own small businesses. They will inhibit development and will treat unfairly all who plan for the future expansion of their businesses.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Senate in Parliament assembled should reject these tax proposals.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
