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

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that the people of Queensland want the reinstatement of an Upper House in Queensland as a second level of government to insure that all issues that effect the people that are addressed by parliament are correctly debated at two levels.


Your petitioners therefore request the House to abide by the will of the people and reinstate the upper house into the parliament of Queensland.  The petitioners also request that (29) twenty nine of the current electoral areas are dissolved and incorporate into other electoral areas and the (29) twenty nine positions left vacant then become Upper House positions.
