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

That we are greatly concerned with the Government's failure to expedite the release of Rob and Jenny Williamson from Pakistani tribesmen who took them captive early in May 1985.

And your petitioners humbly pray that the Senate, in Parliament assembled urges the Australian Government to request the Pakistani Government to negotiate further with the Pakistani tribesmen to procure the immediate release of the Williamsons, and to take whatever steps are necessary to successfully achieve this end.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
