Section 382(3) of the Armed Forces Act 2006 (“the 2006 Act”) provides that the Army Act 1955(c. 18), the Air Force Act 1955(c. 19) and the Naval Discipline Act 1957(c. 53) (“the Service Discipline Acts”), and the 2006 Act itself, will expire one year from the date on which the 2006 Act was passed unless continued in force in accordance with that section.
The Armed Forces, Army, Air Force and Naval Discipline Acts (Continuation) Order 2009 (S.I. 2009/1752) provided for the continuation of the Service Discipline Acts and the 2006 Act for a period of 12 months. Under the 2009 Order, those Acts are to continue in force until 8th November 2010.
However, section 382(6) of the 2006 Act provides that a continuation order may not continue any provision of the Service Discipline Acts beyond the time when the repeal of that provision by the 2006 Act is brought into force. By the Armed Forces Act 2006 (Commencement No. 5) Order 2009 (S.I.2009/1167) the repeal of the Service Discipline Acts by the 2006 Act came into force on 31st October 2009 and, as a result, this Order continues the 2006 Act but not the Service Discipline Acts.
