To the Honourable, the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives, of the Australian Parliament assembled. The petition of certain citizens of New South Wales respectfully showeth that the Federal Government did not make increased funding available for government school programs such as:

1.   General recurrent

2.   Migrant education

3.   Disadvantaged schools

4.   Special education

5.   Capital grants

6.   Multicultural education

7.   Disadvantaged country areas

8.   Children in institutions

9.   Services and Development

10.   Education Centres

11.   Special projects but increased the money available to the non-government school sector by S.9 per cent.

Your petitioners therefore humble pray that your honourable House will restore and increase substantially, in real terms, the allocation of funds for Government school programs.

And your Petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray, by Mr Graham, Mr Howard and Mr MacKenzie.
