Boost Productivity and Reduce Regulation.

The Coalition has released its policy to Boost Productivity and Reduce Regulation.
Reducing regulation is an essential part of the Coalition’s Real Solutions Plan to grow the economy, get the Budget under control and create one million new jobs within five years. 
Our policy will cut $1 billion a year in red and green tape, generate more jobs and strengthen the economy.

Under Labor, 21,000 additional regulations have been added despite Kevin Rudd’s promise in 2007 to cap the growth of regulation. Labor has paid too little regard to the increased costs of regulation to the economy and to our ongoing national prosperity.
Small business, in particular, has carried the cost of Labor’s increasing compliance burden. 
Small businesses don’t have compliance departments – and nor should they.  We need common sense to prevail again.
Our policy will:

  • scrap Labor’s Carbon Tax which is a burden on jobs and households;
  • set aside two Parliamentary sitting days for the repeal of legislation each year;
  • link the remuneration of senior public servants to proven reductions in red tape;
  • create a unit in every department and agency responsible for cutting red tape;
  • establish a one-stop-shop for environmental approvals; and
  • transfer administration of paid parental leave from business to the Family Assistance Office.

This is a comprehensive policy to strengthen the economy by making government more efficient and businesses more productive.  You can read the full policy here.
Our policy is in keeping with the pledge Tony Abbott made in his 2013 Budget Reply:  to deliver careful, collegial, consultative, straightforward government that says what it means and does what it says.
Only the Coalition has the Plan to build a stronger Australia and a better future for all Australians.
