Britain will ban new MPs from employing spouses, relatives or business associates, according to rules announced Thursday in the wake of a scandal that has rocked France's presidential election.

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) outlined the change in a revised rulebook for MPs' expenses, which does not affect existing employees with family or business ties to MPs.
