The UK government will compensate armed forces service personnel, and maintain pension payments to expats in Cyprus who have faced disruption as a result of the proposed bailout.

An EU and IMF rescue package would require all bank customers to pay a levy on their savings.

Treasury Minister Greg Clark told MPs that for UK nationals with deposits in Cypriot banks, it was a "worrying time", as they would be subject to the proposals.
