Mr ERWIN (BALLAARAT, VICTORIA) - I present the following petition:

To the honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of certain citizens of Ballarat, Victoria, respectfully showeth:

That as a supposedly Christian nation in Asia we feel Australia should be setting the example in the efforts to avert possibly the worst avoidable disaster in human history.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Government will immediately increase aid for Pakistani refugee relief to at least $10 million. And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

Petition received.
