Michael Reddell at Croaking Cassandra puts the case for more MPs.

One of my kids is quite sympathetic to ACT.  So when the news emerged yesterday that ACT was adopting NZ First policy, and calling for a reduction in the size of Parliament to 120 MPs, we had a bit of a chat and I offered a few alternative perspectives.

He shows that we aren’t over represented when compared with other countries and reasons that more MPs could result in better scrutiny at Select Committees.

I agree and recommend reading the whole post.
