TDs' allowances to be probed

THE allowances paid to TDs, senators, ministers and junior minister are to come under scrutiny by PAC.

The committee will examine the justification for each of the allowances such as those paid for travel and accommodation.

PAC has decided its review of allowances paid to public servants should not exclude politicians.

Fianna Fail TD Sean Fleming said the public would consider it "a little bit rich" if TDs and senators were not included.
