Senator GUILFOYLE -I present the following petition from 14 citizens of the Commonwealth:

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

That we are concerned at letters in the press inferring that the Family Law Bill should be delayed. We are opposed to such action on the grounds that there has been ample time to discuss the bill with the community, and we are informed and believe that many submissions have been considered by Constitutional and Legal Affairs Committee and the report of that Committee is substantially in accord with the Family Law Bill.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Family Law Bill be debated and passed as soon as possible

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received.
