Prime Minister David Cameron said he does not want to see "deals or pacts" at the next General Election.
When asked on Daybreak whether he would consider a deal with Ukip, Mr Cameron said: "I want to offer people at the next election a strong Conservative Government with a clear mandate to keep on growing our economy, paying down our deficit, delivering for hard-working people.
"Of course, if local Ukip supporters or candidates want to support the local Conservative candidate because that's the only way you can be guaranteed an in-out referendum in Europe ... then of course I'd welcome that."
