Leading Liberal Democrats last night sought to counter speculation that the party's growing closeness to Labour could lead to a merger after the general election, writes The Daily Telegraph (p2).

Alex Carlile, leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats, interviewed yesterday on BBC's On The Record, said the parties were 'slowly coming together' and, if Labour broke free from the unions, they could become one.

But deputy leader Alan Beith told a press conference: 'I do not see the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties coming together. We are a distinct party.'
