Armed Forces Act

Armed Forces Act (with its variations) is a stock short title used for legislation in the United Kingdom and India relating to the armed forces.

In the United Kingdom, an Armed Forces Act must be passed every five years to enable the maintenance of a standing army, which would otherwise be illegal under the Bill of Rights 1689.[1][2][3]
