The Dáil’s Committee on Procedures is discussing today whether or not to penalise politicians who dress inappropriately in the House.
They will meet to consider if a dress code should be imposed in the Dáil and Seanad.
TDs are set to receive a 45-page research paper on issues relating to the standards of dress in 40 other parliaments.
The report was requested by the Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó’Fearghaíl following a number of complaints regarding members’ attire.
In the past, TDs like Mick Wallace have been criticised for turning up to the chamber wearing jeans and a t-shirt, while Luke 'Ming' Flanagan, when he was a TD, also came in for flak on his attire.
Others have argued that the clothes members wear has no bearing on their ability to do their job.
