Sinn Féin's calling for the retirement packages paid to former TDs to be substantially reduced.

It's after new figures show 38 former deputies have been paid nearly 1.1 million euro since February's general election.

They've got an average of 28,000 euro in lump sums and termination payments.

Sinn Féin's finance spokesman, Pearse Doherty, says they need to be cut.
