We probably need to revisit the issue, albeit not of the Oireachtas commission being the appropriate body. However, the Deputy rightly has instanced issues in respect of the Oireachtas commission. It is part of the ongoing discussion regarding other legislation I am having with the Ceann Comhairle on having a representative Oireachtas commission.

I do not want to say any more about that now as is not appropriate to this legislation. We need to have somebody to make the decision, however. There is no more appropriate body currently. I am mindful of the Deputy’s point that we need to make a more representative commission. We will deal with that on another day.
