It appears the bad habits of some former members of the Oireachtas have rubbed off on some of the newly elected ones.
Your report of July 19 (Politicians to be chased for €77,000 of unpaid bills) highlighted the fact that some current and former Dail and Seanad members owe €77,000 to the Leinster House restaurant and bar.
An Oireachtas spokesman said it was not the custom for remaining amounts of money to be written off or paid for by the taxpayer.
