    Under (Government) Of Area

    I found this usage of "come under":

    ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen%27s_Guard )
    "The Queen's Guard and Queen's Life Guard is mounted at the royal residences that come under the operating area of the British Army's London District, which is responsible for the administration of the Household Division."

    According to that usage, "come under" seems to mean "be under the jurisdiction/control of". If I use "come under" in two possible sentences:

    1 "That street comes under the district."
    2 "That street comes under the operating area of the district."

    Sentence 1 is okay, because "district" does not just mean the physical geographical area, but also the government entity controlling it. So, the expanded form of sentence 1 is:

    1a. "That street comes under the government of the district."

    If I apply the same analysis to sentence 2, I would get this expanded form of sentence 2:

    2a. "That street comes under the government of the operating area of the district."

    But then, a question comes up: Does "operating area" has the government sense that "district" does?
