Virtually no travelling
Published by The Financial Times on 25 September 1998
Sir: Your article on MEPs travelling allowances ("Time to stop making allowances", September 21) addresses the issue of allowances. It should have focussed more on the travelling.
The European parliament should follow trends in the European futures markets ("Liffe set to reveal electronic trade plan", September 14) and abolish open outcry. MEPs (and MPs for that matter) should stay in their constituencies and virtually meet through e-mail, e-forums and video-conferencing.
Timers and word counters would automatically cut-off the verbose. And the parliament buildings themselves could go into the hotel business with parliament renting them for half-yearly physical meetings alternating between Brussels and Strasbourg.
