More confusion over new licence plates

More confusion over new licence plates

| 21/02/2018

Upset by well-known person drinking and driving

| 31/01/2018
On various occasions when I’m out at night, I’ve seen a very prominent person in a bar drinking heavily. I know he drives himself home. I think he’s clearly a danger to himself and others, not to mention he’s setting a terrible example as he’s someone who holds a high position. What should [...]

Fired civil servant looking to appeal decision

| 23/01/2018
I lost my job in the civil service due to what I believe was a false report filed on me. I also do not think the circumstances of my case were investigated properly. Is there an independent entity that could look into this and if it finds I was unfairly dismissed order my reinstatement? [...]

Removing an MLA from office

| 14/12/2017
While I am familiar with the process for removing a premier and the speaker from the speakership, the process for removing an MLA from the Legislative Assembly entirely is unfamiliar to me. Would I be correct in assuming that it includes a formal review and a vote in the LA? Also in the case of [&he [...]

Wants to stop neighbour’s dog coming into yard

| 23/10/2017
Am I right in thinking the Agriculture Department has no website? If it does not, why not? I wanted to check for such things as how to get assistance with dealing with a neighbour’s dog always invading my property and killing and/or chasing chickens, cats, etc, none of which I want happening.

Getting excused from serving as a juror
