Senator CARRICK (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I present the following petition from 187 citizens of Australia:

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

That we strongly oppose the introduction of legislation which would lessen the $400 education rebate to $ 1 50:

That we require the members of Parliament to keep to the spirit of Section 13, 4(b), of the Australian Schools Commission Act which states that the Government, "Asserts the prior right of parents to choose whether their children are educated at a government or at a nongovernment school. "

That the reduction of the education rebate would prejudice the practice of this prior right as stated in Section 13, (4b), of the above mentioned Act.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Government will take no measure to reduce the education rebate.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received.
