To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled.

The petition of the undersigned taxpayers of Australia, respectfully show that we deplore the use of taxation funds to allow privileges and travel entitlements for homosexual staff members of the Australian Broadcasting Commission, on the same basis as legally married couples.

As taxpayers, we humbly request that this decision be reversed immediately and our taxation contribution be used for more urgent needs, such as defence, housing, education, roads, transport and social security benefits.
