Some of their members are suspicious of links with other parties and they oppose pre-election pacts. In a recent broadcast. Liberal chief whip David Steel said the party would join with another party or parties to form a broadly based govern- ment if the election produced no clear winner.

The Conservatives feel frus- trated in the existing minority Parliament in which Labor can be outvoted at any time by a rival combination. They have had to pull their parliamentary punches because they did not want to precipitate an early election. The main obstacle to a coalition is that most members of the governing Labor party are thoroughly unsympathetic to the idea. Prime Minister Harold Wilson has branded coalition talk as After the last election. Con- servatives made overtures to the Liberals for a temporary alliance but the Liberals spurned the offer.
