Later today, the government of Cyprus will vote on a controversial bailout plan which would tax bank deposits up to 10 percent. The proposed levy caused markets around the world to fall yesterday and sparked protests in Cyprus.

The BBC’s Nigel Cassidy in Cyprus joins Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson to gauge reaction to the plan in Cyprus and whether the government will actually pass the measure.
