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

(a)   That the amenities of residents in the vicinity of Kingsford Smith Airport are being affected by the rapid growth of aircraft traffic and the accompanying increase of aircraft noise.

(b)   That by failing to enforce the curfew between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., the Government has added further to the burden of residents.

(c)   That the delay in selecting a site for a second airport has effectively postponed alleviation of the noise nuisance for residents in the vicinity of Kingsford Smith Airport.

YOu petitioners, therefore, most humbly pray that:

(a)   The curfew between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. at Kingsford Smith Airport be rigidly enforced.

(b)   The site of a second airport for Sydney be selected without further delay.

(c)   Noise limits be placed on aircraft operating at Kingsford Smith Airport and that the operating rights of companies persistently violating the limits be withdrawn.

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

Petition received.
