Cameron on help for UK government workers in Cyprus


The prime minister has said that the UK government has "absolutely guaranteed" to protect the money of British servicemen and Foreign Office workers in Cyprus.

But he said the British government could not insure British nationals living in Cyprus against losses from Cypriot banks.

David Cameron said it was a "sensitive and difficult time" for Cyprus, after being asked by Ed Miliband about helping British people on the island, although they later clashed over the UK's role in a EU bailout.

The Cypriot parliament has overwhelmingly rejected an international bailout deal.
