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

  We the undersigned call on the Senate to oppose the Labor government's inequitable wine tax.

  We believe that any increase in tax on wine will cause harm to an important industry which promotes Australian jobs and is an important export for our country.

  We oppose outright any increase in wholesale sales tax on wine and reject any moves to defer the introduction of this tax, as deferral is simply deferred support of the proposal.

  And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
