EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

STATUTORY RULES 1990 NO. 296

ISSUED BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE MINISTER FOR DEFENCE SCIENCE AND PERSONNEL

CADET FORCES REGULATIONS (AMENDMENT)

The Cadet Forces Regulations (“the Regulations”), made under the Defence Act 1903. Naval Defence Act 1910 and Air Force Act 1923. provide for the organisation and administration of the three cadet bodies: the Australian Cadet Corps, the Naval Reserve Cadets and the Air Training Corps (“the cadet forces”).

Regulation 5 of the Regulations provides for the appointment of officers and instructors in the cadet forces. Subregulations 5(2) and 5(3) included provisions that prevented persons from being appointed as officers or instructors in the cadet forces after attaining the age of 56. This limitation was no longer required, as it is desired to widen the field of persons who can be considered for appointment.

The Statutory Rule removes the upper age limit of 56 years for appointment of officers and instructors in the cadet forces. The current retirement age of 60 remains unchanged.

The Statutory Rule comes into operation on the date of gazettal.
