Second Reading

Debate resumed on the motion:

That this bill be now read a second time.

to which the following amendment was moved:

That all the words after 'That' be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

'whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House:

(1) notes:

(a) the bill proposes that information will be obtained to determine whether the operators of child care services are financially viable, and likely to remain so;

(b) the bill also proposes that financial information will be obtained relating to large long day care centre operators;

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

(d) that the increasing regulatory burden represents a broken election promise whereby the Labor Government said that it would only introduce a new regulation after repealing an earlier regulation: a "one in, one out" rule; and

(2) calls on the Gillard Government to immediately adopt 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.'
