Do parliamentarians need so many helpers?

It's not so much a case of who the TDs employ. The better question is surely whether all these personal assistants, parliamentary assistants, secretaries, drivers (the list is probably endless) and the salaries they command are even necessary or worthwhile? I would suggest that the answer to that question is more worthy of investigation.
