Background The European Union single banking supervision mechanism, as agreed by MEP negotiators and the Council Presidency in late March, was debated today in plenary session. The final vote on the rules will come later, allowing more time for parallel talks between the EP and the European Central Bank on detailed accountability provisions for the system's supervisor. MEPs took advantage of the debate to stress that accountability rules must match the supervisory powers created or transferred to EU level. The ECB, in its supervisory role, will therefore have to be much more open and accountable. Also highlighted was the need to develop a supervisory system with the widest possible membership, so as to avoid fracturing the single market in financial services.
