Armed Forces Bill

Session 2005-06
Other Bills before Parliament


Short Title of the Bill
Make provision with respect to the armed forces; and for connected purposes.

Extract from Explanatory Note produced by Government Department   
The Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force operate within separate statutory frameworks of discipline which apply at all times wherever in the world members of each service are serving. The respective bases for these systems are the Army Act 1955, the Air Force Act 1955 and the Naval Discipline Act 1957. Collectively they are known as the Service Discipline Acts (SDAs). The SDAs are concerned largely, but not exclusively, with discipline. (Source: Explanatory Note Bill 94- EN)
