- creating a new offence to criminalise planning or preparation for a terrorist act
- creating a new offence to more clearly criminalise terrorist weapons and combat training
- creating a new offence for international travel to carry out terrorist activities
- expanding the criminal offence of financing terrorism to include broader forms of material support
- extending the eligibility for a control order to include individuals who have completed a prison sentence for a terrorism-related offence if they continue to present a real risk of engaging in terrorism-related activities.
The Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Act was reviewed by the Law Commission in 2016.
