A hearing will take place on October 2nd to decide whether to confirm Midlands-Northwest MEP Mairead McGuinness as the new EU Commissioner with responsibility for financial services.

Nominees to the European Commission must be cleared of conflicts of interests, and then be confirmed in a vote of the European Parliament, following a hearing by MEPs.

The Irish Times reports that on October 2nd, MEPs will evaluate if Mrs McGuinness is suitable to become a member of the College of Commissioners, and if she's qualified to carry out the duties assigned to her.

The issue will then be put to a vote by all MEPs in the European Parliament on October 7th.
