8.1.3 Coverage of Cadet Corps
The SRCA's formal inclusion of Cadet Corps members clarifies the status of such persons as 'employees' although they are unpaid. For further information on who qualifies as a member of the Cadet Corp see the Defcare commentary, which contains extensive quotes from the Defence Act.
Cadet Corps members were not formally provided for by the terms of the 1971 Act, but are and were included in pre-1988 coverage as a result of judicial decisions and government policy.
