2014 Autumn Repeal Day

Calendar showing March 26

The Australian Government has a plan to cut $1 billion in red tape every year. As part of that plan, there will be two parliamentary repeal days every year to cut unnecessary and costly legislation and regulation. The first repeal day was in the House of Representatives on Wednesday 26 March.

On Wednesday 19 March, following a statement by the Prime Minister, the Government introduced legislation and tabled documents to repeal  more than 10,000 pieces and more than 50,000 pages of legislation and regulation and save over $700 million of compliance costs from across the economy.
