I spoke at length today with Fine Gael TD, David Stanton regarding the ‘special’ passport service operated by TDs from Dail Eireann (See here). He has agreed to table a number of Dail questions on the issue such as;
Why does the scheme exist?
How many passports have been issued by TDs in the last 12 months/2 years?
How many civil servants are working in the Passport Office on the service?
Is there a cost associated with the service?
Has the Minister any intention of discontinuing the service?
