Letter: Libya did not give to NUM

Click to follow
Sir: Paul Vallely's article on Libya's Colonel Gaddafi (4 September) reports on donations given by Libya to various campaigns and activities throughout the world and states that the amounts given are "far more than was donated to Arthur Scargill's NUM here during the miners' strike".

No Libyan money was ever donated to or received by the National Union of Mineworkers or its national officials, and untrue media allegations to that effect have long since been discredited.
