Question 25: Would you put a cap on the cost of ministerial cars, introducing vehicles that are a little less ostentatious and better value for money?

Posted by Dylan in Answers

I would support putting a cap on the cost of ministerial cars. I believe the taxpayer deserves value for money across the board on all kinds of expenses incurred by ministers and other politicians. I think when all citizens are struggling financially and we’re constantly being spoken to about ‘austerity’, our politicians should reflect such prudence. Capping the cost of ministerial cars would be one way of both saving money and showing that every public servant is making an effort to act in the best interests of the tax payer in these trying times. They could also lead by example by using hybrid cars to show their dedication to lowering emissions and caring for the environment.

    Why does your signature say after each question, “The ANSWERS series will be updated daily until Feb 25th. All answers were those given by Dylan to questions received online or on the doorstep.”?
    Why stop the questions there? Is it not a better format to continue them should you be elected?

      Hi Evan, thanks for the comment. This series is mostly questions from the campaign trail, but I will definitely continue to answer questions in an accessible and transparent way online and in person throughout my Dáil term.
