Although item 13 amends subsection 9BA(1) of the Defence Act 1903 , that subsection continues to apply, in relation to a person who held an appointment under subsection 9(1) or 9AA(1) of that Act immediately before that item commenced, as if that amendment, and the repeal of Division 3 of Part II of that Act, had not happened.

89  Saving—other appointments under the Defence Act

Although item 14 repeals Divisions 2, 3 and 3A of Part II of the Defence Act 1903 , those provisions continue to apply, in relation to a person who held an appointment under subsection 10(1) of that Act immediately before that item commenced, as if the repeal had not happened.

Although item 19 repeals sections 36 to 44A of the Defence Act 1903 , those sections continue to apply, in relation to a person who was enlisted under subsection 36(3) of that Act immediately before that item commenced, as if the repeal had not happened.

91  Saving—appointments under the Naval Defence Act

Although item 67 repeals Part II of the Naval Defence Act 1910 , that Part continues to apply, in relation to a person who held an appointment under subsection 8(1) of that Act immediately before that item commenced, as if the repeal had not happened.

92  Saving—enlistments under the Naval Defence Act

(2)        However, regulations that continue in effect under this item do so only to the extent that they are not amended or revoked by later regulations.

95  Regulations about transitional matters

(1)        The regulations may make provision in relation to other saving and transitional matters in connection with the amendments made by this Schedule.
