The Structure and a Summary of the Act

Part 2 – Disclosure of Convictions

Rules relating to disclosure

Section 21 - Table B – disclosure periods: service sentences

91.Section 21 inserts a new section 5B after section 5A. Section 5B adds a new Table B to replace the current Table B in section 5 of the 1974 Act.

92.This new table deals only with disposals given to an individual as a result of a service disciplinary offence. It does not amend the disclosure period for these disposals. The only change is that now, rather than being separated across Table A and Table B, all are located in Table B. .
