Attached government RTF document from bug 97895 does not display correctly:
Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Act 1997—Form 201-BRS — Birth registration statement

Table on page 3 extends past right page boundary.

Thank you

tables on page 3 aren't shift to the right on libreoffice 3.5, thus it's a regression. However, the overall layout looks quite bad at that time.
Changing version as this can be already reproduced in Version (Build ID: efca6f15609322f62a35619619a6d5fe5c9bd5a)

In 5.3beta2 page 3 has the header is "Birth Registration Statement", the first two fields are "Certificate applied for?" and "Registration Number" and indeed extends beyond right edge.

In a bit of page 2 spills over to page 3, but otherwise the table is the same, and also extends beyond right edge.

In this table is on page 6 (the whole structure is much worse), and also extends beyond right edge.

In the table is on page 4, and extends beyond right edge.

Finally in 3.3.0 the table starts in the middle of page 3, and extends beyond right edge.

Conclusion: not a regression.

Dear Óvári,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
