Cut costs by reducing Seanad to 49 seats

THE Government, even without the Taoiseach's 11 choices, has an overall majority in Seanad Eireann. May I suggest not filling them and reducing the cost of the Upper House by 18.33pc by having only 49 seats.

This would be a start in deconstructing the Seanad and save the taxpayers well over a million a year.
