Proposal from Gunnar Hökmark on new banking legislation approved by ECON committee in European Parliament

MEPs agreed on a roadmap for banks to deal with losses, by ensuring that they hold enough capital and debt not to need taxpayer bailouts and defining conditions for remedial measures.

Rapporteur Gunnar Hökmark (EPP, SE), said: ”By introducing TLAC we will make EU banks more resilient. We are also ensuring that the concept of BRRD, that all debt is bail-in able, and at the same time ensuring that we don’t punish well-capitalised banks”.
