Veterans Review and Appeal Board Act

Division 11 amends the Veterans Review and Appeal Board Act to limit the number of permanent members of the Veterans Review and Appeal Board to no more than 25. The current limit in the Act is no more than 29.

Currently the Board is functioning effectively with 24 permanent members. Indeed, it has consistently operated with less than the maximum number of members for several years

As such, reducing the maximum number of permanent members on the Board to 25 will not affect service standards for Veterans.
