Mr McIVOR (GELLIBRAND, VICTORIA) - I present the following petition:

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Victoria respectfully sheweth:

Bring to your notice the presence of venomous snakes encroaching on homes/schools (Williamstown Girl's High and Williamstown Boy's Technical) from the Department of Army, Merrett Rifle range, Kororoit Creek Road, in the city of Williamstown.

Your petitioners pray that the Department of Army take immediate steps to clean up this area to eradicate the infestation of snakes occurring there resulting to date with the death of household pets with the recurrent threat to humans.

We respectfully point out that the prevalence of long grass and undergrowth is most conducive to the breeding of snakes, accordingly we would be humbly grateful if this most serious problem could be given urgent attention.

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

Petition received and read.
