To the Honourable Speaker and Honourable Members of the House of Representatives assembled. This petition of concerned citizens:

Earnestly request that the funding of the Women's Health Centres and Rape Crisis Centre be increased to allow these centres to adequately provide the services vitally needed by the women of New South Wales; Further to this end that funding be granted to allow new greatly needed Women's Health Centres and Rape Crisis Centres to be established.

We abhor the continued cuts in funding that have occurred over the past three years and which are creating a situation whereby the centres are now facing the likelihood of no longer being able to function.

We submit that the deficit incurred by the cuts be made good by the Federal Government and to this end we submit this petition.

And we your petitioners, as in duty bound, will every pray for the granting of our plea. by Mr Charles Jones.

Petition received.
