A new ethics panel could look to a jury of citizens on complaints against lawmakers as part of a broader action on standards in parliament.

Other jobs for MPs could be banned and a new code of conduct could replace the ministerial code under the proposals.

Labor did not deny reporting but insisted the commission’s work was ongoing.

A Labor spokesman said: “This refers to one of several early drafts. The commission has yet to take an opinion on all of these issues.”

Party leader Sir Keir Starmer appointed Mr Brown, who was No 10 from 2007 to 2010, to lead a review of possible reforms last September.

The agreed measures could reportedly be unveiled later this year.
