Ukip have confirmed that leader Nigel Farage and Clacton MP Douglas Carswell met this afternoon as they try to iron out their differences about how to spend £650,000 of taypayers' money that they're entitled to.
Mr Carswell was approached by Ukip officials earlier this week and asked to spend the party's 'short money' on recruiting 15 new members of staff.
However, he rejected the proposal and insisted that it was inappropriate to spend so much on just one parliamentary office.
Now, Ukip have confirmed that the pair have been in discussions today regarding the disagreement.
"Nigel Farage met with Douglas Carswell this afternoon and there's ongoing discussion about how best to represent four million Ukip voters in a way that is sensible and correct."
