QUEENSLAND Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has denied factions or other Labor MPs have petitioned her to dump Bundamba MP Jo-Ann Miller from the cabinet.

The QT reported on Wednesday members of Labor's left faction were calling for Ms Miller, who has been involved in a number of alleged scandals throughout the year, to be dumped from the cabinet.

But speaking to media in Brisbane on Wednesday Ms Palaszczuk said any decision on a cabinet reshuffle would be her "decision alone".

When asked if there were concerns over Ms Miller's position in the ministry, Ms Palaszczuk denied anyone had urged her to demote the police minister.

"No one's said anything to me," she said.

"I'm not going to deal in gossip."

But Ms Palaszczuk praised the cabinet's performance throughout the year.

"I'll be sitting down with my ministers. I said to my entire cabinet the other day - they have been implementing the government's agenda, the budget, they are out there selling the budget, they have been working very hard and they have been engaging with the public."
