Dominic Grieve on jihadist control measure complexities

David Cameron has said that people from the UK, who go abroad to fight with Islamic extremists, will only be allowed to return to Britain under certain conditions.

The government has outlined plans which would make it illegal for jihadists to come back for two years unless they agree to be closely supervised.
