   10   National security challenges

Mr Hastie, pursuant to notice, moved—That this House:

(1)        notes that as the terrorist group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, comes under increasing pressure in Iraq and Syria, there is the risk that more foreign fighters will seek to leave, with some trying to return to their home countries, including Australia;

(2)        acknowledges that the Government:

(a)        has given greater support, funding and legislative powers to law enforcement and security agencies; and

(b)        continues to work in close partnership with international partners to counter the terrorism risk; and

(3)        notes that the national security challenges facing Australia continue to evolve.

Debate ensued.

The time allotted for the debate having expired, the debate was interrupted, and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for the next sitting.
