TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Assembly (Tasmania)
Tasmanian Citizens draw to the attention of the House that your petitioners were distressed by the sudden reduction of the House of Assembly from 35 to 25 members on July 23, 1998, immediately before an election and that the said petitioners have suffered a decline in the quality of Government as a consequence of the said reduction of the House of Assembly.
Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to restore forthwith the size of the House of Assembly to 35 members, so as to restore both the quality of the Government and the confidence of the petitioners in the said Government of the State of Tasmania.
