PETITION - SCARBOROUGH BEACH, FOREIGN MATERIALS

DR EDWARDS (Maylands) [2.09 pm]: I present the following petition -

To: The Honourable Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of the
Parliament of WA in Parliament assembled.

We the undersigned people of Western Australia object to any foreign
materials being placed on or under the white sand of Scarborough Beach such
as clay, building rubble, rubber tyres, as seen during the recent EASTER
ROUND UP.

The introduction of foreign materials presents a situation to which no
beach should be exposed.

We therefore request that the beach never be subject to such use again.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that you will give this matter your
earnest consideration and your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever
pray.

The petition bears 1 040 signatures and I certify that it conforms to the
standing orders of the Legislative Assembly.

The SPEAKER: I direct that the petition be brought to the Table of the House.

[See petition No 135.]
