28Provisions with respect to office of Judge Advocate of His Majesty's Fleet

(1)Any appointment made by His Majesty after the passing of this Act of a person to be the Judge Advocate of His Majesty's Fleet shall be of a person recommended to His Majesty by the Lord Chancellor.

(2)No person shall be qualified for appointment as Judge Advocate of His Majesty's Fleet unless he is a barrister-at-law of not less than ten years' standing or an advocate of not less than ten years' standing.

(3)The Judge Advocate of His Majesty's Fleet shall be removable by His Majesty on the ground of inability or misbehaviour upon a recommendation in that behalf made by the Lord Chancellor, and shall vacate his office at the end of the completed year of service in the course of which he attains the age of seventy years:

Provided that, where the Lord Chancellor considers it desirable in the public interest to retain the Judge Advocate of His Majesty's Fleet in office after the time when his office is required to be vacated under the foregoing provisions of this subsection, the Lord Chancellor may from time to time authorise the continuance of the Judge Advocate of His Majesty's Fleet in office up to such age (not exceeding seventy-two years) as the Lord Chancellor thinks fit.

(4)There may be paid to the Judge Advocate of His Majesty's Fleet, out of moneys provided by Parliament, such salary and such travelling and subsistence allowances as the Lord Chancellor may, with the approval of the Treasury, determine.

(5)In this section the reference to a barrister-at-law shall be construed as a reference to one who is a member of the bar either of England or of Northern Ireland, whether or not he is a member of the bar of the other country also.
