To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled.

The petition of the undersigned strongly oppose attempts by the Government to increase the level of the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) and to decrease the threshold at which graduates begin to repay their HECS debt.

Wherefore, your petitioners, request that any further changes to the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) be referred to a committee that will assess the impact of fees and loans on higher education.
