Issues discussed during Sunday’s question time included the Transport and General Workers Union, Britain’s largest trade union, which has a membership of over one million individuals. Conservative members of the House of Commons criticized the Labour Party for their close affiliation with the unions.

Another issue debated by Parliament was the allegation of fraud against the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, an institution owned by Abu Dhabi, and the subsequent closure of the bank.
