Labour TD Jack Wall told TheJournal.ie that one of the suggestions made to the commission was an automatic deduction of unpaid bills from politician’s wages.
In a meeting in June the Ceann Comhairle requested a sub committee to examine ways to reduce administration in relation to invoicing and credit management as a means to a more streamlined process.
Wall said one of the suggestions was in relation to situations where a member cannot pay the bill on the spot because they have forgotten their wallet
, for example.
“In that case, if it was unpaid after three months it would be automatically deducted from their monthly cheque,” he said.
