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

1.   That over the past 10 years the payments made by the Commonwealth to the State of New South Wales have been consistently less than the payments made to most other States.

2.   That the arrangements made by the Commonwealth in regard to off-shore oil have been inequitable to the people of New South Wales.

3.   That New South Wales no longer possesses such predominance in natural advantages as would enable it to bear without complaint the consequences of such adverse discrimination.

Your petitioners therefore pray your Honourable House to consider ways in which these inequities can be corrected, and to initiate action for this purpose.

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

Petition received.

Suggest corrections
