FORMER miners’ union president Arthur Scargill has reached an out-of-court settlement with the National Union of Mineworkers over expense claims.
In February, Mr Scargill was awarded £13,000 in damages by a judge at Sheffield County Court after he claimed the union owed him expenses.
The NUM said it would appeal against the decision, which was due to be heard at the Court of Appeal in January.
A statement released on behalf of both parties said: “The action due to be heard in the Court of Appeal in January 2013 has been settled between the parties on terms acceptable to the parties.
“No other statement will be made about this matter by any party to this litigation or by any other person acting on their behalf.”
