Issues addressed by members of the British House of Commons in questions put to Prime Minister John Major include aid to refugees in the Middle East and Africa, and reforms in the educational and medical systems in Great Britain. Debate particularly concerned the situation of labor and the creation of jobs in Great Britain. Prime Minister Major opposed the creation of a minimum wage law proposed by the Labour Party, which he said would cost 1 to 2 million jobs. Four minutes of the question period were eliminated from the telecast due to technical difficulties. close
