§ 37. Mr. Ashdown
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received any representations on the Visiting Forces Act; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mellor
We received three letters during 1985 about the implementation of the Act. In reply we explained our view that amendment to its provisions on jurisdiction was unnecessary and that a case had not been made out for collecting statistics on the number of cases on which a visiting force had claimed primary jurisdiction.
