Morning Star

You report (26 February) a claim in the that the Communist Party of Britain has been in talks with Arthur Scargill about the possibility of his party, the Socialist Labour Party, buying the paper.

A recent informal discussion between representatives of the two parties did not include any such proposal. The is owned by a readers' co-operative (the People's Press Printing Society) and is not the Communist Party's to sell. Nor would we support any such move.
