I, THE GOVERNOR-GENERAL, in and over the Commonwealth of Australia, acting with the advice of the Federal Executive Council, hereby make the following Regulation under the Defence Act 1903-1934.

Dated this twenty-eighth day of November, 1934.



By His Excellency’s Command,


Minister of State for Defence.


Amendment of Munitions Supply Regulations.

Regulation 47 of the Munitions Supply Regulations is repealed and the following regulation inserted in its stead:—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 under the following conditions by the Manager in any year ending on the thirtieth day of June to an employee who is a member of the Defence Force:—

(a) For attendance for training of the employee’s unit or corps—with full pay for the minimum annual training required in the year of his unit or corps.

(b) For attendance at one school, class, or course of instruction in the year—with full pay for two days, and without pay for any additional period for which the employee’s attendance is required;

Provided that 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:

Provided also that, if it would not be in the public interest to grant leave of absence under this regulation to an employee for the purpose of attending a camp, school, class, or course of instruction of his own unit or corps, the Manager may grant in lieu leave of absence as prescribed by this regulation for the purpose of attending an equivalent camp, school, class, or course of instruction of another unit or corps.

“(2.) Leave of absence granted with pay under this regulation shall not be deducted from recreation leave.

“(3.) 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 of leave with full pay granted under this regulation may be granted leave on the following terms:

(a) If compensation is not paid to the employee by the Department of Defence in respect of 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 he paid the difference, and his sick leave credit shall he 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.

“(4.) This regulation shall be deemed to have come into operation on the fourteenth day of August, 1934.”
