3rd Reserve Forces Appeals Tribunal Rules 1997

(S.I. 1997/798)

Rule 28(1):

Limited use of powers.

The Department has been unable to review how the Rules work in practice as no appeals have been made. Call-out has to date been strictly limited to volunteers whose employers had clearly signified assent. Until call-out is widespread and compulsory, we believe that appeals will be infrequent.

[1998, 1999]

Because of the limited number of appeals (one to date), the Department has still not been able to review how the Rules work in practice. [2001]

Because of the limited number of appeals (one to date), the Department has still not been able to review how the Rules work in practice. However, reviewing the Rules will be undertaken in the light of cases brought during Op Telic. [2002]
