Counter-Terrorism Legislation Amendment (Foreign Fighters) Bill 2014; In Committee
I will come back to an operational question now, about the way the offence would operate in practice.

For example, would a new declaration be made each time a new Syrian city or region is embroiled in conflict, or is it envisaged that a blanket declaration would be issued?
