  • Suggesting that the House act to ban the sale of energy drinks to children under 18 years
  • Asking the House to do all it can to ban live exports of animals

The terms of your petition must relate to an area in which the House has power to act, usually this means something that the Federal Government is responsible for. Check the petition requirements for more information on this.

Please note that there is a combined 250 words limit for both your Reasons and Request for Action.

Please modify your petition terms to keep words count within 250.
