TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House there are businesses in Queensland who are refusing to accept legal Australian tender i.e. cash, cheques et cetera. This is immoral and needs to be illegal. The people of Queensland should have the right to pay for goods and services using any form of legal Australian tender of their choice.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to call on the Queensland Government to legislate that any business operating in Queensland must accept any and all forms of legal Australian tender.
