Libel reform: What Next?

The Defamation Act 2013 is a victory for citizens’ groups and democratic pressure, but work still needs to be done. We still need to see new effective regulations for websites passed by Parliament, civil procedure rules to help early strike out of trivial claims quickly and cheaply, and costs protection rules to ensure fairness and access to justice. Minister Lord McNally has said that “Work is being taken forward on these aspects to ensure that we can commence the Defamation Act 2013 before the end of the year.”

The Libel Reform Campaign has produced a short briefing that looks at the outstanding issues from the Defamation Act and what needs to be done next. Libel reform: What next? (PDF).
