Breaking the Silence

Breaking the Silence: Participants hear how the new anti-domestic violence legislation will help victims.

This week (Monday, 31 January) on GIS Spotlight we explore how a new law gives the vulnerable a voice, we touch on innovative test technology and we review plans for the new National Gallery.

The Protection from Domestic Violence Law, 2010 was passed last year. We join an inter-agency information session where participants heard how the law supports a holistic approach to thwarting domestic violence.

Tune in to hear how the new law will help people to break the silence by, amongst other things, expanding the definition of domestic violence and allowing for harsher sentences.

Taking your driver's licensing test has just become a whole lot easier - and paperless. Join us for a first look at this cutting-edge technology that literally only requires a touch of the screen. We talk to officials on how this feature saves time and money while also providing other benefits such as instant statistics.

Our next stop is the National Gallery where we spoke to Director Natalie Urquhart about the Gallery's new home.

Hear why it is important for a country to have a place for its art treasures. Plus find out how the National Gallery is nurturing the next generation of artists.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.
