The Visiting Forces Act 1952 makes provision for the exercise in the United Kingdom1 of powers by the service courts and authorities of any visiting force2 over the members of that force and of any civilian component3 of the force4, and places restrictions on the trial by the courts of the United Kingdom of persons connected with any such force for certain offences against United Kingdom law allegedly committed by such persons5.

None of these provisions, however, affects any powers of arrest, search, entry, seizure
