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

The humble petition of employees of Woodsreef Mines (Limited and Chrysotile Corporation of Australia Pty Limited and residents of Barraba, Bingara, Manilla, Bundarra respectfully showeth:

That revaluation of Australian dollars by the Federal Government in December 1972 and the devaluation of U.S. dollars in February 1973 have caused Woodsreef Mines Limited severe revenue losses.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that:

The Federal Government will assist this company in the form of urgent compensation to help this mine to continue operating.

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

Petition received.
