   (a)   notes:

      (i)   the government response to the Bradley reforms may impose increasing regulation on the higher education sector,

      (ii)   the growing burden of red tape and regulation imposed on small businesses, not-for-profit organisations, higher education providers and industry by the Gillard Government, and

      (iii)   that the increasing regulatory burden represents a broken election promise by the Labor Government which said that it would only introduce a new regulation after repealing an earlier regulation - a 'one in, one out' rule; and

   (b)   calls on the Gillard Government to adopt immediately the Coalition's red-tape reduction policy which will seek to reduce the cost of the Commonwealth's regulatory burden by at least $1 billion per year".
