MEPs to vote on plans for new EU-wide laws to target financial market abuse

Nearly nine out of ten Britons want bankers put in jail if found guilty of fraud or manipulating financial markets, a new survey reveals

The poll is published as a committee of Euro-MPs in Brussels vote today on proposals for new EU-wide laws defining financial market abuse and insider trading and setting criminal penalties.

Any agreement in the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee on setting penalties will then pass to the full European Parliament for another vote which would then require backing from EU governments.
