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

The petition of citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the Senate proposed Commonwealth Government cuts to various government departments and programs, including labour market programs, Landcare, child care, state grants, Regional Development, the ABC, Legal Aid and Health. The effect on Tasmanian people and the Tasmanian economy will be a dramatic reduction in services and support to all Tasmanians.

Your petitioners therefore request the Senate to intercede on our behalf to strongly oppose these and any future cuts.
