Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee (ECON) MEPs discussed the best design for rules regulating bank capital requirements. They discussed the need for rules that would work in good times, not bad, and that would create a level playing field for all institutions. Othmar Karas, the EP Rapporteur, expects to produce a report, amending the Commission’s proposals, towards the end of January 2012. (Source:  ECON Debates Bank Capital)
