The Director of Public Affairs of Parliament, Mr Jones Kugblenu, said journalists were ascribed a high responsibility and, therefore, they always needed to ascertain whether what they did was in the national interest.
"We have weighed all the options: monetary cost, maintenance and security, and Parliament is of the opinion that giving Parliamentarians rent allowance is the best", stressed Mr. Kugblenu.
Indeed some school of thought was even of the opinion that "housing NPP and NDC members in a block of flats at a specific location is not the best," Mr. Kugblenu told the Spectator.
The Public Affairs Director said, some time ago, Parliamentarians were put up in a hotel at a cost of $70 per person per night; when this is multiplied by the number of Parliamentarians it is quite high.
Mr. Kugblenu disclosed that the Sakumono block of flats acquired for Parliamentarians, in 1993 have been given to Parliamentary staff.
