PETITIONS - Road Funding

To the Right Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled: The humble petition of the undersigned concerned citizens respectfully showeth:

That local authorities throughout Australia are appalled at the recently announced Commonwealth Government allocation of a mere $628m for roads in 1 980-8 1 . There is extreme disappointment at both the level of total Commonwealth funding for all road categories and at the specific allocation for the local roads category.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray:

1   . That road funding arrangements for 1 980-8 1 to 1 982-83 reach at least a total of $2,200m over the triennium.

2.   That the Commonwealth maintain an active financial interest in the funding of all categories of roads.

3.   That the Commonwealth ensure that a proportion of the funds flows through the States earmarked for Local Government purposes.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray,

Petition received. by Mr FitzPatrick. Petition received.
