He said that in conjunction with the party’s two in-house economic advisers — Joanne Spain and Eoin O Broin — the party had sought advice and insight from a number of economists from across the spectrum.

“But there are things he says I disagree with. This is all part of making sure our policies are robust and credible,” Mr Mac Loughlainn said.
