Tory MP Michael Fabricant, David Cameron's election adviser, has admitted that no discussions have yet taken place with the UK Independence Party (UKIP) over a potential election pact.
He says that any agreement could not take place for "a good 24 months".
This is a discussion document only; I have had no discussions whatsoever with UKIP, but have based the pact on what Nigel Farage has said in his speech at the UKIP Conference this year.
My paper proposes a line of policy (the in-out referendum) and a possible pact with UKIP before the general election.
Clearly, this will be a decision for the Prime Minister to whom I will be submitting the document.
Nothing could happen in any event for a good 24 months.
