If people are quoting extracts of regulations, please quote the container (QR, JSP, AP, ACP) as well as the section and paragraph. Be careful, taking one section from a regulation may be used out of context when the qualifier makes it not apply to the situation.
PoP rules, Section 9;
2.1 the rules in this sub section applies to no one ever.
2.3. Everyone must wear a pink tutu at all times whilst in duty.
Quoting "PoP rules, section 9, 2.3; everyone must wear a pink tutu at all times whilst on duty" is misleading.
