Government seeks to limit Red Tape in Schools.....
In October 2016, the Australian Senate resolved to establish a Select Committee on Red Tape to inquire into effect of restrictions and prohibitions on business on the economy and community. As part of its inquiry, the committee are also examining the effect of red tape on private education, in particular:
  • the effects on compliance costs (in hours and money), economic output, employment and government revenue;
  • any specific areas of red tape that are particularly burdensome, complex, redundant or duplicated across jurisdictions;
  • the impact on health, safety and economic opportunity, particularly for the low-skilled and disadvantaged;
  • the effectiveness of the Abbott, Turnbull and previous governments' efforts to reduce red tape;
  • alternative institutional arrangements to reduce red tape, including providing subsidies or tax concessions to businesses to achieve outcomes currently achieved through regulation;
  • how different jurisdictions in Australia and internationally have attempted to reduce red tape; and any related matters.

The Senate Select Committee held a public hearing in Melbourne last week with representatives across private education, including the Catholic schooling sector.
