Andrea Enria, the European Central Bank’s senior banking supervisor, has called for major reforms to the way the European Union deals with failing banks.

They assumed these banks “could be dealt with under ordinary liquidation procedures at the national level”, he said in a speech in Frankfurt on January 15.
