Munitions Supply Regulations.

Statutory Rules 1926, No. 210, as amended to date.)


Munitions Supply Regulation 47 is repealed and the following regulation inserted in its stead:—

“Leave for Defence Purposes.

47.—(1.) Leave of absence for the purpose of attending Naval, Military or Air Force training may be granted by the Manager to an employee who is a member of the Defence Force, but the total period of leave in any year ending on the thirtieth day of June shall not exceed the absence that is necessary to enable the employee to attend the minimum annual training required in that year of members of his unit or corps and one school, class, or course of instruction. Evidence of the necessity for such attendance shall be submitted with an employee’s application, and at the conclusion of the camp, school, class, or course of instruction, the employee shall produce to the Manager a certificate of attendance thereat.

(2.) Leave of absence granted in pursuance of the last preceding sub-regulation may, at the option of the employee, be deducted from recreation leave due, and in respect of the period so deducted, shall be granted with full pay if not so deducted, it shall be granted without pay, unless during the absence, the employee is paid as a member of the Defence Force and the amount received by him, excluding pay for Sundays and holidays, is less than the amount of civil pay he would receive for a like period of recreation leave, in which case he shall be paid the difference. For the purpose of computing the difference, pay as a member of the Defence Force includes all remuneration received, exclusive of lodging and clothing allowances, and any meal allowance or allowance in lieu of rations.

35.—Price 3d.


(3.) Upon production of evidence that attendance is necessary, leave of absence with full pay may be granted by the Manager—

(i) to employees who are Senior Cadets, to perform the annual training under the Defence Act 1903-1927 which the employees are required to perform within ordinary hours of duty; and

(ii) to employees who are serving with cadet units, for the purpose of attending cadet training,

(4.) Leave of absence shall not be granted under this regulation in respect of any period of training required of an employee for failure to become efficient as a member of the Defence Force, or while he is undergoing detention or training for an offence committed as such member.

(5.) An employee who while undergoing the training referred to in this regulation, sustains injury or contracts illness necessitating his absence from duty beyond the period required for such training, may be granted leave on the following terms:—

(a) If compensation is not paid to the employee in respect to such absence, the leave may be granted as sick leave.

(b) If compensation is paid, and is equal to or exceeds the amount of remuneration which the employee would have received had he been granted sick leave, the leave shall be granted without pay.

(c) If compensation is paid, and is less than the amount of remuneration which the employee would have received had he been granted sick leave, he shall be paid the difference, and his sick leave credit shall be reduced as if he had been granted sick leave with pay corresponding to the amount of the difference:

Provided that where the employee’s services are not further required, leave shall only be granted to the date on which he would have ordinarily ceased duty.”
