Dr J F Cairns (LALOR, VICTORIA) - I present the following petition:

To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled, the petition of the undersigned citizens of Melbourne respectfully showeth:

Their sincere request that:

Australia increase financial aid to less wealthy underdeveloped countries to reach a minimum of one per cent of her gross national product by 1971;

Australia revise her trade and tariff policies and practices in order to make available, both in Australia and overseas, more markets for goods from less developed countries.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that tha honourable members of the House of Representatives will take immediate steps to discuss and to effect the requests mentioned. And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received and read.
