To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in the Parliament assembled.

The Petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully sheweth:

That the proposed cutback and/or closure of our local community health centre will lead to a decline in the health status of our community. We appreciate their varied services, which include: baby health services, counselling, chiropody, physiotherapy, community nurses, preventative services etc.

We believe that the community health program will cut rising health costs by supporting people in their own homes. Therefore, we support the basic health care and prevention carried out by our health centre.

We request that adequate funding is provided for the continuation of and expansion of these valuable services to our community.

Your Petitioners there, humbly pray that your Honourable House consider this petition.

An your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray, by Mr Les McMahon. Petition received.
