The European Central Bank will directly supervise 'between 130-150' EU banks under the proposed banking union framework, Mario Draghi told MEPs on Monday. Speaking during a monetary dialogue hearing with the Parliament's Economic and Monetary Affairs committee, Draghi added that national supervisors would have more powers, particularly over small banks.
