    Why are DFRS not publicly available

    Youd think since they were SIs then they would be.

    However I found this



    Under the provisions of subsection (4) of section 2 of the Statutory Instruments Act 1947 (No. 44 of 1947) the Attorney General may, if of the opinion that certain statutory instruments are of limited application, exempt such statutory instruments from the provisions of subsection (1) of section 3 of the Act. On 22 October 1954 the then Attorney General made a declaration that statutory instruments made under the following sections of the Defence Act 1954 (No. 18 of 1954) had only limited application and exempted these from the provisions of subsection (1) of section 3 of the Statutory Instruments Act 1947. The sections of the Defence Act 1954 to which the exemption from the provisions of subsection (1) of section 3 of the Statutory Instruments Act 1947 are 17, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 29, 40, 43, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 53, 55, 56, 58, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 70, 72, 73, 75, 80, 81, 82, 84, 86, 87, 88, 90, 92, 93, 94, 97, 98, 100, 102, 103, 114, 115, 116, 117, 180, 182, 184, 243, 244, 246 and 292. In addition, on 3 April 1991 the then Attorney General, again because of their limited application, exempted section 2 and 5 of the Defence (Amendment) Act 1990 (No. 6 of 1990) from the provisions of subsection (1) of section 3 of the Statutory Instruments Act 1947.

    If you contact DoD Legislation Section, they will email them (with a few exceptions)

    Oh I know. The point is that legally they are exempt from publication to the wider public. This was a fact I did not have . ( note that there was an act in 2015 that further codified this )
