Being in Parliament, work hard (6)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'work hard' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'being in parliament' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'being' could be 'abo' (Abo is an example) and 'abo' is found within the answer.
The remaining letters 'lur' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for labour that I've seen before include "Painful time" , "women have expected for months to be in" , "unnecessarily elaborate" , "Left - work" , "Workforce" .)
