To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in the Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

(a) that there is an urgent need for the establishment of a comprehensive and co-ordinated assessment, counselling treatment and rehabilitation service for people with drug and alcohol related problems in the Westernport region of the State of Victoria.

(b) that Westernport drug and alcohol services deserve the financial and policy support of the Federal Government in its efforts to develop such services within the Westernport region.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Federal Government will develop a policy of providing comprehensive and co-ordinated services for drug and alcohol problems and provide Westernport drug and alcohol service with the financial support it currently requires.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
