Public submissions are sought in relation to reforming Defence legislation.
Defence legislation provides legal authority for activities critical to the military defence of Australia. However, this legislation requires modernisation to meet the needs of the current and future strategic environment.
Defence is developing policy options to modernise the Defence Act 1903 and related legislation to enable Defence to be more agile, operationally effective and responsive.
