To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

(i)   The Rural economy of the Shire of South Gippsland is severely disadvantaged by the current prices being paid for cattle;

(ii)   The Council of the Shire of South Gippsland is extremely concerned with the financial crisis which is rapidly overtaking its finances;

(iii)   Non-replacement of outdoor staff has been introduced since early 1974 because of the effective reduction in funds for road maintenance and construction caused by inflation;

(iv)   Continually increasing wages and salaries as a result of indexation cannot continue to be passed on to the ratepayer.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the House take steps to-

(   1 ) grant to the Shire of South Gippsland an amount of $200,000 to enable it to provide the same standard of service it provided in 1972;

(2)   increase this grant annually in line with the inflation rate.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever prayby Mr Nixon.

Petition received.
