Fiona Bruce will present BBC’s Question Time tonight from Stratford-upon-Avon.

She will lead the panel and studio audience through a discussion of today’s hottest talking points, including the ongoing train strikes.

The general secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT), Mick Lynch will be a guest on the panel.

Rail workers are striking for a second day, following the walkout on June 21, and ahead of Saturday’s planned industrial action–which is set to go ahead.

Lynch told Sky News: “It’s a tough job. It will take a lot of progress to get [Saturday’s] strike off. I can’t see that happening today from where I am, but we will work constructively with the companies.”

Around 40,000 union members are striking over an ongoing dispute over redundancies and real-term pay cuts.

Lynch is sure to face tough questions from the studio audience on tonight’s Question Time, especially as YouGov data showed that more people oppose the strikes than support them.

So who else will be on the panel tonight and how can viewers tune in?
