What is a petition?
A petition is a document addressed to the House of Representatives and signed by at least one person. It asks the House to act on a matter of public policy or law, or to put right a local or private concern. Anyone of any age can petition the House including corporations and unincorporated bodies with sufficient identity as organisations.
Your petition can only be accepted by the House if it conforms to certain rules. If you are interested in starting a petition to Parliament, please read through our Guide for petitions.
