The Speaker of the House of Commons will look at plans from Ed Miliband for a new 'Public Question Time', although it will be up to MPs to approve the idea.
Mr Miliband wants the public to be allowed into Parliament to ask the Prime Minister questions.
A spokeswoman for Speaker John Bercow said: "The Speaker will look at Mr Miliband's suggestions with interest, when he receives them. Clearly, any changes would be a matter for the House."
She also said it was clear that within Westminster "there is also an appetite for further reforms to how the House of Commons conducts itself".
