OBJECTS AND REASONS.

It has been found necessary to make provisions in the
Principal Ordinance for the appointment of warr:' nt i'fi.'. in the
Defence Force and for matters in connlecoin therewith and this
Bill seeks to give effect thereto (( I'n--. 2, 3 (iii) and (iv), 4, 6
and 7).
2. The Principal Ordinance contains certain references to
specific provisions of the Army Act for the time being in force
in England. The Army Act, 1955, which ciniou into operation
on the 1st Januaay, 1955, Jives a new numbering to
these provisions and this Bill seeks to make consequential
amendments to the Principal Ordinance (clauses 8 and 9 (b) ).
*q


of 1957.






of 1957. Defence force (Amendment) 5


3. The Bill also seeks to amend section 12 (5) of the
Principal Ordinance in order that warrant officers, non-
commissioned officers or volunteers of the Force, when discharged
from the Force before the end of their current terms of service,
will pay the value of any item issued to them in cases when for
any good or sufficient cause the delivery of such property is
impossible. In its present form the said subsection provides for
such payment to be made when for any good and sufficient
cause such delivery is impossible. It is considered that the
proposed amendment will result in a provision which is at once
more normal and more equitable than that which exists-it fol-
lows the provisions of section 17 (1) (iii) of the Auxiliary Forces
Act, 1953 (Imperial)- (clause 5).

4. Section 23 (5) of the Principal Ordinance provides
that proceedings against an offender before either a court-
martial of the Commanding Officer or a Magistrate's Court, in
respect of an offence punishable under the Ordinance, and alleged
to have been committed by the offender when a non-commissioned
officer or volunteer of the Force, may be instituted whether the
term of his service in the Force has or has not expired. No
S provision is, however, made in the said subsection for a time
limit within which such proceedings may be taken. The amend-
ment sought to the said subsection is, therefore, to make provision
for such a time limit (clause 9 (a) ).
5. The opportunity has been taken, to seek to amend the
definition of "Army Act" and to insert a definition of the
expression army reserve in the Principal Ordinance (clause 3
(1) and (ii) ).
