What should a Defamation Bill contain?

The Libel Reform Campaign document What should a defamation bill contain? was launched in the House of Commons in March 2011, prior to the publication of the Government's draft Defamation Bill. In the document we set out our blueprint for reforms needed to protect free speech and debate.

Along with members of the Libel Reform Campaign, supporters of libel reform including Justine Roberts, Mumsnet; Martyn Hocking, Which?, Dr Philip Campbell, Nature; Simon Singh, science writer and libel defendant; Richard Allan, Facebook; Charmian Gooch, Global Witness; Eric Metcalfe, Justice; Naomi McAuliffe, Amnesty UK; Peter Noorlander, Media Legal Defence Initiative; Sophie Farthing, Liberty and Dr Fiona Godlee, BMJ called on parliamentarians to change the law to protect free expression and the citizen critic.
