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 showeth that the procedures used to determine eligibility for unemployment benefit (Work Test) are considered inappropriate in times of high unemployment.

Your Petitioners therefore humbly pray that Parliament take note of the Norgard Review of the Commonwealth Employment Service and the Myer Inquiry into the Administration of Unemployment Benefit and make the necessary legislative changes to repeal the amended 'Work Test' procedures.

And your petitioners in duty bound will ever pray, by Mr Holding. Petition received.
