Senator YOUNG (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) -I present the following petition from 567 citizens of the Commonwealth:

To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of the Commonwealth respectfully showeth:

(   1 ) That Australian citizens place great value on their freedom to choose their own doctor in all aspects of medical care.

(2   ) That we believe in a doctor's freedom to provide a personal service based on personal responsibility within a system based on quality rather than quantity, as opposed to an impersonal service in which doctor and patient lose their identity.

(   3 ) That proposals to change the existing health scheme are unacceptable to the people of Australia.

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

A petition in identical terms was presented by Senator Laucke.

Petitions received and read.
