In a report, it suggested that MPs could be forced to attend individual coaching sessions on topics such as diversity, dignity in the workplace, anger management and people management.

'This might include banning a Member for a specified period from access to bars and catering facilities, or Library facilities, or taking part in certain select committee activities, if they have been abusive towards staff or disruptive in those contexts,' the committee said.

Chris Bryant, the chair of the Committee on Standards, said: 'We want to ensure that the system is fair, professional and proportionate and https://set-magazine.com/best-duravit-toilets/ that it rewards best practice.

'For too long the only sanctions available against MPs have been a slap on the wrist or suspension from the House.

'We hope this new set of sanctions, together with a clear set of guidelines on what will be considered as aggravating and mitigating factors will give complainants, MPs and the public a clear idea of the kind of attitudes and conduct we are trying to promote and those we wish to eliminate.'
