PRAGUE (Reuters) - The biggest Czech banks have agreed in principle to contributing starting capital of 6 billion crowns ($259.92 million) to a proposed national development fund, Prime Minister Andrej Babis told reporters on Monday.

Babis has proposed the fund as an alternative to calls from his junior ruling partner to implement a sector tax on banks, which he has opposed.
