The state broadcaster has been called before both committees in the past year.

A midlands Senator believes the Oireachtas Media Committee should be allowed to finish their process with RTÉ before the Public Accounts Committee call on them.

Since the RTÉ payments scandal broke last year, the state broadcaster has been called before both committees, leading to a doubling up of witnesses and questions asked.

There were also occasions where the same witnesses met with both the Media Committee and PAC on the same day, such as Ryan Tubridy and his agent Noel Kelly.

Member of the Media Committee and Longford Senator Micheál Carrigy says they want to make sure that Ireland has a strong independent public service broadcaster.
