To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives ' in Parliament assembled. The humble petition pf residents of the Division of Murray respectfully showeth:

That we are deeply concerned, over the location of the border between Papua. New. Guinea and Australia which in one place is only 200. yards, from Papua but 100 miles from the coast of Australia. We believe that it would be diplomatic if the Australian Government would initiate a more equitable drawing of. the boundary 'between these two countries. ''. ,

Your Petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Government will immediately review the location of the boundary before Independence ;is granted to Papua . New.., Guinea and whilst this is still an internal Australian concern. . ,

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

Petition .received.
