Mark Pritchard, Conservative MP for The Wrekin, has accepted undisclosed damages from the union Unite over "hurtful and untrue" comments made about him on its website, his lawyer have announced.
Solicitor-advocate Simon Smith said Mr Pritchard had also accepted a formal apology and reimbursement of all his legal costs "in respect of a libel complaint made against the union behind the BA strike".
The complaint arose out of a bulletin published on the website on March 17 entitled "Come Clean Willie - how many more Tory MPs have their snouts in BA's trough".
It commented on a question raised in Parliament that day by Mr Pritchard, saying he had "viciously and disgracefully" attacked BA cabin crew and also suggested he had been bought by BA.
In an apology which will appear on the union's website, Unite states: "In fact, we are happy to clarify that Mr Pritchard's question in Parliament concerned only the leaders of Unite and made no attack at all on BA cabin crew.
"Furthermore, the suggestion that Mr Pritchard had been bought by BA was entirely false and we sincerely apologise to him for this."
In a statement Mr Pritchard said: "Unite's comments were hurtful and untrue. I have accepted their apology.
"BA cabin crew are some of the best in the world. I have flown with BA for nearly three decades."
