To the Honourable die Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in' Parliament assembled. The humble petition of ' residents of the Commonwealth of Australia, respectfully showeth; .

That as most other Commonwealth employees receive recognition of length of service by way of Long Service Leave or Furlough, we employees of Government Departments, who work 24 hours per week or less are denied this benefit. We call on the Treasurer and the Minister for Labour and National Service to amend the sections of the Commonwealth Employees' Furlough Act which causes this injustice. We believe the recognition- of length of service to an employer to be the right of every employee and that the Commonwealth Government should recognise that right. Your Petitioners therefore humbly pray that Sections SB and 6 (3) (a) of the Commonwealth Employees' Furlough Act be repealed.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Keith Johnson.

Petition received.
