Conservatives: "We will review and reform libel laws to protect freedom of speech, reduce costs and discourage libel tourism."
Lib Dems say they will: "Protect free speech, investigative journalism and academic peer-reviewed publishing through reform of the English and Welsh libel laws - including by requiring corporations to show damage and prove malice or recklessness, and by providing a robust responsible journalism defence."
So it's a commitment by all three main parties, with the Lib Dems being the most specific. Who will deliver though?
