To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled:

We the undersigned believe the Aborigines' Act 1971 and Torres Strait Islanders' Act 1971 of Queensland, together with the Regulations of 1 972 pertaining to those Acts to be the most repressive and discriminatory legislation existing in Australia.

We urge the Federal Government most strongly to take responsibility for Aboriginal Affairs out of the hands of all State Governments and call for the total abolition of the said Acts.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Bryant.

Petition received.
