Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Doherty calls for five way economic debate with Finance Spokespersons

28 January, 2011 - by Pearse Doherty TD

Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty has challenged the Finance Spokespersons from the other Dáil parties to a live election debate on each party’s economic proposals.

Speaking today Deputy Doherty said:

“We all know that this election is going to be all about our economy and which party can best steer us out of our current crisis and back to stability and prosperity.

“Sinn Féin has a fundamentally different approach to all the other Dáil parties in that we don’t agree that ordinary Irish people should be made pay for the mistakes of the banks.

“It is vitally important that the electorate is given the opportunity to hear each party’s proposals in an open debate.

“I am therefore challenging all of the other parties’ Finance Spokespersons to a full and open debate on the economy.” ENDS
