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

The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth, that:

We are concerned that the National Party in Queensland is diverting money given by the Federal Government to the Queensland Government to alleviate natural disasters; that it might not be finding its way to its intended targets; and that it is being diverted to the coffers of the National Party itself or otherwise to expansion projects promoted by members or supporters of the National Party.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray the Federal Government be asked to legislate for an audit of account from the Queensland Government for every dollar or cent provided by the Federal Government for any type of relief operation in Queensland.
