To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled. The Petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth -

That the National Women's Advisory Council has not been democratically elected by the women of Australia; That the National Women's Advisory Council is not representative of the women of Australia; That the National Women's Advisory Council is a discriminatory and sexist imposition on Australian women as Australian men do not have a National Men's Advisory Council imposed on tham.

Your petitioners therefore pray:

That the National Women's Advisory Council be abolished to ensure that Australian women have equal opportunity with Australian men of having issues of concern to them considered, debated and voted on by their Parliamentary representative without intervention and interference by an unrepresentative 'Advisory Council'.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Aldred, Mr Baume, Mr Bourchier, Mr Bryant, Mr Burns, Mr Kevin Cairns, Mr Ewen Cameron, Mr Howe, Dr Jenkins, Mr Roger Johnston, Mr Katter, Mr Lusher, Sir William McMahon, Mr Mackenzie, Mr Macphee, Mr Martyr, Mr Moore, Mr Nixon, Mr Peacock, Mr Scholes, Mr Staley and Mr Yates.

Petitions received.
