To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the proposals in the European Commission’s Communication for the Spring European Council, COM(09)114, providing for EU-wide supervision over banks and financial services will be brought forward as legislative proposals to which qualified majority voting will apply; and what the legal basis for each proposal will be.

I have deposited a copy of the Chancellor’s letter in the Library of the House of Commons.
