To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned residents of Lethbridge Park and surrounding areas respectfully showeth -

That as a consequence of the Government's decision to refuse a visa to Mr A. R. Barry, a laboratory assistant from New Delhi, India, his brother-in-law, Dr Kapoor, is considering returning to India. That Mrs Kapoor, who is Mr Barry's sister, is very homesick and is insisting on Dr Kapoor's return to India if her brother is refused entry to Australia. That Dr Kapoor, who conducts a general practice, is highly regarded by all and is always on call and, in the event of his return, we would lose the services of a valued member of our community.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the House of Representatives will request the Government to reconsider its refusal to grant an entry visa to Mr A. R. Barry, a laboratory assistant from New Delhi, India.

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

Petition received.
