Oct. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Icelandic lawmakers are moving ahead with a motion to require the island’s lenders to split their businesses into commercial and investment banking.

If approved, Industry Minister Steingrimur J. Sigfusson will appoint a committee to oversee how to best conduct a separation to minimize the risks posed to Iceland’s economy, according to the motion posted on parliament’s website.

The committee will be asked to deliver its proposals by Feb. 1 next year.
