- The Senate must be invested with meaningful powers. As it stands it is largely toothless. A powerful Senate committee could be invested with powers to block wasteful spending proposals emanating from the Lower House.
- The national electorate should choose the Senate.
- Dail and Senate elections should be held simultaneously.
The message is clear. Reform the Senate or else abolish it. As presently constituted it is undemocratic and a waste of tax payers money.
