Senator JESSOP (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I present the following petition from 135 citizens of Australia.

To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament Assembled. The humble petition of undersigned citizens of Australia showeth: that a capital gains tax applying as another death duty is unjust in its application and catastrophic in its effect.

Your Petitioners therefore humbly pray that a capital gains tax be not levied in addition to death duties.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received and read.
