Petition presented to the House but not read on the Floor

Elimination of Hunger and Thirst

The Petition of Mr Martin Burke of Elizabeth Regina Love,

Declares that there is no end to what the British people might do when they are fed well; notes that Mr Burke of Elizabeth Regina Love has petitioned the House of Commons to bear in mind the General Economic Measurement Scale and the General Democratic Voting Scale; further notes that this petition is about the elimination of both hunger and thirst, and, especially, the fear of hunger and thirst; and further declares that he has faith in the wisdom and judgement of the British people.

The Petitioner therefore requests that the House of Commons bears in mind in its law making a Universal Daily Cash Benefit (UDCB) to the value of the cost of food and drink for a day; and that should the question be put the House consents to the benefit contained in this petition; and further requests that should the question be put the House of Commons consents that this petition be communicated to the world’s other parliaments.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
