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 the Veterans' Entitlements Bill dated May 1985 is taking a fair ``earned service'' from the men and women of Australia who kept this country free so that Governments of today could have the freedom to be able to Govern fairly.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the Senate in the Parliament assembled ensure that the previous legislation in respect of Servicemen and Women and their dependants' entitlements be restored.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
