France will soon hand over to Austria tax data linked to leaked client data of lender HSBC which has admitted failings in compliance at its Swiss private bank, France's finance minister said on Thursday.

'My administration will of course respond positively to this request and will transfer the information desired by the Austrian authorities in the coming days', Michel Sapin told journalists after meeting Austrian counterpart Hans Joerg Schelling.

Reuters reports that Schelling said the information included huge sets of data, some of it encrypted.
