Labour’s biggest union backer Unite is facing questions over how it spent £98m of members’ money on a hotel and conference centre.

Some Labour MPs are calling for an inquiry into the Birmingham scheme, which was originally estimated to be £57m.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said it was “an issue for Unite to address”.

Unite says accountability was built into the scheme “at every stage” to ensure value for members’ money.
