Mr Keith Johnson (BURKE, 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 employees of Ansett Airlines of Australia respectfully shows our complete unqualified support for Sir Reginald Ansett and the Board of Directors of Ansett Transport Industries.

We do here express our most vehement opposition to any attempt to wrest control of the company Ansett Transport Industries from the present Board of Directors to that of Thomas Nationwide Transport

Your petitioners humbly pray that the Federal Government and its leaders will institute all such measures as may be deemed necessary to prevent any takeover of this company until such time as the Federal Government is satisfied that the national interest of the Australian people is best served by such a takeover.

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

Petition received and read.
