To the President of the Senate and Senators in the parliament assembled:

The undersigned petitioners respectfully request that the Senate recognises that the Howard Government's decision to write off Iraqi debts to Australian wheat growers will impose a serious financial burden on a group that is already suffering the effects of a prolonged drought.

The petitioners therefore call upon the Senate to act to ensure that affected wheat growers are fully compensated.

by Senator Webber (from 184 citizens).
