CADET FORCES REGULATIONS (AMENDMENT)
The Cadet Forces Regulations, made under the Naval Defence Act 1910, Defence Act 1903 and Air Force Act 1923, provide for the organisation and administration of the three cadet bodies: the Naval Reserve Cadets, the Australian Cadet Corps and the Air Training Corps.
Paragraph 10(1)(a) of the Cadet Forces Regulations provides for ranks in the Naval Reserve Cadets to be specified in Schedule 1 of those Regulations.
Schedule 1 provides for the rank structure of cadets, instructors and officers of the Naval Reserve Cadets. Column 1 of that Schedule, which deals with the ranks of cadets, did not recognise the ranks of Chief Petty Officer and Warrant Officer.
The Statutory Rule amends Schedule 1 so that it includes the ranks of Chief Petty Officer and Warrant Officer in the rank structure of cadets.
The Statutory Rule comes into operation on the date of gazettal.
