National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq has taken significant steps towards austerity measures, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Among the notable cuts, he returned unnecessary protocol vehicles, extra security, and reducing staff allocations at the speaker house.

According to sources, the Speaker has returned more than 30 employees from the Speaker House to the National Assembly.
