Fine Gael’s Deputy Michael Ring, spokesperson on community, rural, and Gaeltacht affairs, has said the €35 million in savings brought about by the party’s Oireachtas reforms could be used for services like transport for hospital appointments, water and sewerage schemes, roads, etc. Dep Ring said the package included a reduction by eight of the number of junior ministers, cutting the number of joint Oireachtas committees by 10, ending the practice of paying fees to those holding positions on those committees, no ministerial pensions to be paid while the member is still serving in either house of the Oireachtas, direct elections for 20 of the Seanad seats, and extending the Dáil sitting week from three to four days.
