The party whips systems are "not fit for purpose in terms of dealing with employee matters” says a former Conservative Party whip, when interviewed about sex allegations surrounding some MPs in Westminster.
On Monday, Downing Street denied it has a list of possible offenders on the Tory backbenches, but a day later Rob Wilson said he believed there was such a list, with names across the political divide.
Asked by Daily Politics presenter Jo Coburn if he believed there was a dossier-list of MPs and ministers who were "of concern", the former Reading East MP replied: "Yes".
A former soldier has told the BBC he fears decisions made on the battlefield could be used against servicemen long after they have left the military.
Newbury MP, Richard Benyon, has called for a change in the law and is bringing a bill before parliament which he hopes will address the issue.

Plans for the building of 2,000 new homes on a Maidenhead golf course have moved a step closer to being built, despite vocal opposition from locals.
Councillors at the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead gave the development, which also includes a new school, the green light last night.
They were heckled by around a 150 locals at the meeting, but the council argue the development is essential to cope with Maidenhead's growing population.
"We know this is a huge undertaking", said authority leader Simon Dudley "but Crossrail will be nearby by 2019, and we can create a wonderful place for residents to live".
Critics at the meeting claimed that the plans do not address any subsequent traffic issues or social housing needs.

The colleague of a police officer who ran over a burglary suspect has denied telling him to give chase in an armed response vehicle.
Aston McLean Williams, 28, died in Wokingham Road, Reading, after a PC used a car as a "mobile barrier".

The misconduct hearing, which is in its second day, continues.

Yes, it's a police dog who was stabbed, but hailed a hero after saving his handler from an armed suspect.
German Shepherd Finn almost lost his life after being stabbed by a suspect in Stevenage a year ago.Copyright: South Beds News Agency
The attack and his subsequent recovery prompted a campaign for changes in the law to better protect police service animals.
And now he's been turned into a pumpkin by solicitor and co-director of Finn's Law Ltd - the group pushing for the new law - Sarah Dixon from Christchurch in Dorset.
Being a huge fan of all things Finn-related, she also likes to "get a little creative" - and we think it's a pretty good likeness.
