To the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled, the petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth that we believe that the autocratic decision to terminate the appointment of His Honour Commodore E. E. Johnston, A.M., O.B.E. as the administrator of the Northern Territory is an affront to the people of the Northern Territory and abhorred by them. Further, such an action denigrates the position of the administrator of the Northern Territory.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the Senate in Parliament assembled should ensure that His Honour, Commodore E. E. Johnston, A.M., O.B.E. is appointed immediately for a further five years as administrator of the Northern Territory and your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
