Hi, im just started this unit and perhaps being a bit dumb but should i just outline all the legislations etc or just the ones appicable to northern ireland - which is where i live?
Im finding it all a bit confusing trying to work out which are applicable here and which ones cover the whole of the uk - so thinking perhaps bung in brief outline of everything!
