Arthur Scargill, the NUM president, said the union was taking legal action against the Labour Party over the issue of all-female shortlists.

In a letter to a party member, Mr Scargill says: 'I have always argued vociferously for women to be represented in Parliament, but on the basis of equality and not sexual discrimination. I have not fought all my life against sexual discrimination to see one form of discrimination replaced by another.'
