FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Dealing with soured bank debt will remain the European Central Bank's top priority in the coming years, the proposed new chief of its supervision arm told a confirmation hearing on Tuesday.

"The first (priority) is completing the cleaning of bank balance sheets," Andrea Enria told the European Parliament's committee on economic affairs in Brussels. "The second priority is promoting banking integration and private risk sharing."
