2014 CHAPTER 20

14 May 2014

Introduction

1.These explanatory notes relate to the Defence Reform Act 2014, which received Royal Assent on 14 May 2014. They have been prepared by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) in order to assist the reader in understanding the Act. They do not form part of the Act and have not been endorsed by Parliament.

2.The notes need to be read in conjunction with the Act. They are not, and are not meant to be, a comprehensive description of the Act. So where a section or part of a section does not seem to require any explanation or comment, none is given.
