Prime Minister Gordon Brown is planning to give police the power to stop and search people without giving a reason, sources have told the BBC.
It comes as Tory leader David Cameron urged greater use of stop and search to combat gun and knife crime.
The two leaders clashed earlier in the Commons with Mr Cameron urging Mr Brown to scrap forms officers must fill in when they stop someone.
Mr Brown said the Flanagan Report on the issue will be published next week.
Labour has been locked in a war of words with the Conservatives over stop and search, with the two parties promoting apparently similar policies.
