Written answers (Question to Defence)

Applicants to the Defence Forces are required to successfully pass all stages of the induction process. While the period of time between these stages has been impacted by required Covid 19 public health guidelines, the induction process remains prioritised and applicants are kept updated on the status of their application.

I am advised by the military authorities that the individual outlined in the details supplied to the question has been informed that his application is being administered and that further contact will be made in due course.
