Dr MACKAY (EVANS, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Navy) - I present the following petition:

To the Honourable the Speaker and the Members of the House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Australia. The petition of the undersigned citizens of the electorate of Evan1;, Lowe and adjoining electorates respectfully sheweth: That whereas -

(a)   The pupils of Ashfield Boys' High School are suffering under the disadvantage of overcrowded playground accommodation.

(b)   That the facilities in Ashfield Boys' High School in regard to its playground, size and area per boy are inferior in size quality and attractiveness compared with other schools in the metropolitan area.

(c)   The playground is so dangerously small that often games have to be stopped in the interest of safety.

(d)   That the only possibility of expansion exists in the taking over of the area at present owned by the Commonwealth Government and occupied by the Citizen Military Forces (C.M.F.).

We your petitioners request that the Commonwealth Government relinquish ownership of this land to the State of New South Wales for the expansion of Ashfield Boys' High School. And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received and read.
