The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

That the Commonwealth Public Service Board policy in reviewing Allowances paid to Officers of the Commonwealth Public Service stationed in remote localities of the Commonwealth, does not embrace fully the ambit of disabilities in these remote localities and in addition, is being reviewed only after lengthy periods of time.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled will take immediate steps to -

1.   Have the Commonwealth Public Service Board carry out reviews on District Allowances payable to Officers stationed in remote localities every two years.

2.   Have the Commonwealth Public Service Board alter its policy of reviews to a more realistic and wider ambit, and include in its policy a visit by reviewing Committees to remote localities in every State.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Bonnett and Mr Fulton.

Petitions received.
