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

The petition of certain citizens of Australia humbly draws the attention of the Senate to the continued government interference in the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme which is causing hardship and confusion amongst the sick and elderly.

Your petitioners therefore request the Senate to guarantee the provision of an adequately funded Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme which is free from government tampering and provides for the public of Australia a comprehensive range of modern therapeutic products.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
