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

  Your petitioners respectfully request that the Broadcasting Services Bill which will control Television and Pay Television, will:

  prohibit all excessively violent programs

  prohibit indecent and obscene programs

prohibit blasphemous programs which denigrate religious faith or belief

establish strict legally enforceable standards for programs and transmission times

ensure that films are judged not as a whole, but in all parts

ensure genuine consumer consultation, so that parents can have access to program criteria information, and input into decision-making for their home environment

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