War of words continues over returning foreign fighters legislation

From Morning Report, 7:30 am on 23 October 2019

The government is accusing National of reneging on its word over new laws to monitor fighters returning from overseas. The bill's been delayed as Justice Minister Andrew Little works to get enough votes to pass the first reading. Mr Little says National confirmed its support for the law changes by email last week, but now won't follow through with that commitment. We speak to National party leader, Simon Bridges.
