Transparency and Accountability

I firmly believe that all Members of the Oireachtas should have a statutory duty to provide detailed accounts of donations and public funding on an annual basis. I was particularly disappointed that the Government voted down amendments to the Electoral (Amendment) Political Funding Bill 2012, moved by Senator Fiach Mac Conghail and myself in March 2012. Our amendments would have ensured fully vouched expenses to Party Leaders and Independent Members, and would have banned corporate donations to political parties.

As part of my commitment to transparency and accountability, I believe that every Senator should publish an annual statement of the public money they receive. You are invited to view my statements for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, which have been endorsed by Transparency International Ireland, below:
