Stability council says Sweden may need to do more to curb household debt

STOCKHOLM, Dec 14 (Reuters) - More measures may be needed in Sweden to rein in household debt growth, the minutes from the most recent Financial Stability Council meeting showed on Wednesday.

"The authorities in the Stability Council agree that risks are building up regarding household debt and that further action may be required to slow debt growth," the minutes said.

The Financial Stability Council comprises the country's financial watchdog, the central bank, the Finance Ministry and Debt Office.
