RTÉ urged to rethink cost-cutting plans

British and Irish politicians have called upon Irish public broadcaster RTÉ to reconsider closing its London base as part of wider cost-cutting plans.

RTÉ is cutting costs and jobs in an effort to save money and reduce its deficit and plans to close its London office as part of that programme. However, the British-Irish Parliamentary Assembly yesterday called upon the broadcaster to reconsider its plans and look for alternatives to closing the London unit.
