I thank Senator McDowell for that contribution and for all the work he has done on the establishment of the Seanad Select Committee on Scrutiny of Draft EU-related Statutory Instruments. As a member and Vice-Chair of that committee, the proposals the Senator has made are important but the fact is this is costing the taxpayer money every hour.The purpose of that committee was to save the taxpayer money, to catch legislation and directives that were not being transposed on time or, as we now find out, correctly. Broadening the remit of that committee serves the taxpayer and the citizens of this State better. That is a proposal worthy of the CPPO tomorrow.
