Senator MURPHY - I present the following petition from 27 citizens of the Commonwealth:

To the Federal National Parliament of Australia by Pensioners and the Public who do care to be presented to the House of Representatives (Lower House) and House of the Senate (Upper House), to the Honourable Speaker of each House, we ask as members of the Public that:

A nationalised Government and Private transport system be established.

That Pensioners transport be made free within the Federation where the Government has constitutional powers.

To make all Government and Private transport free within the Federation to Pensioners and all other underpriviledged members of the community.

Although the pension has been increased by $1.50 the high cost of living has effectively made this increase worthless, consequently the above actions are considered to require urgent National Government Action.

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

Petition received and read.
