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

This humble petition of certain citizens of Australia respectfully draws the attention of the Senate to the Government's attack on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, which has severely affected the viability of our community pharmacies and their ability to provide the quality and quantity of services to which we as Australians have a right.

Your petitioners respectfully request the Senate to urge the Government to guarantee an adequately funded Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, so as to ensure the continued viability of neighbourhood pharmaceutical services through our local community pharmacies.
