Senator WOODS (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Health and Family Services) —by leave—I present to the Senate the following petition, from 567 citizens, which is not in conformity with the standing orders as it is not in the correct form:

ABC Petition

We the undersigned call on the Australian Government to ensure that Triennial Funding is retained and that no cuts are made to the operation of the Australian Broadcasting Commission. Further we call on the Australian Government to ensure that ABC services remain free of commercial sponsorship and advertising, that no cuts are made to radio services and that Radio National, Classic FM, Radio JJJ and Regional Radio Services are retained.
