UK Conservatives say Lib Dems could get ministers

Conservative foreign affairs spokesman William Hague said on Friday that Liberal Democrats could be offered ministerial posts in a possible future coalition after Britain's inconclusive election.

The Conservatives won most parliamentary seats but fell short of an overall majority and leader David Cameron has made an overture to the Liberal Democrats to see if the two parties could reach an agreement.

"David Cameron hasn't excluded that possibility," Hague told Sky News when asked if the Lib Dems could be offered cabinet posts in a coalition.

"Clearly any negotiations would have to be very successful to get to that point of actually sitting around the cabinet table together.

"There are many other forms of agreement to conduct the government of the country that are well short of that could be discussed. But we haven't excluded any form of arrangement."
