Draft Bill Lester Libel

Published by jailhouselawyer
Lord Lester's private member's bill to reform the libel laws has been published.

It is the first attempt in over a century to redraft libel laws that are regarded as being unfair, against the public interest and out of date in the digital age.

There has been a public outcry about the chill on free speech, which has affected publishers, journalists, authors, scientists, academics and bloggers.

There is widespread parliamentary support for reform, and the coalition government has pledged to back changes to the law.
