Senator KNIGHT (ACT) - I present the following petition from 399 citizens of Australia:

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled.

The petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth:

Employees and self-employed contributions to approved superannuation fund.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the Senate, in Parliament assembled, should approve that:

(a)   Contributions paid each year to superannuation funds should be removed from the rebate system and made a separate deduction from assessable income.

(b)   The amount allowed as a deduction to be at least that required to provide a retirement benefit of $ I 55,400.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received and read.
