Section 40 is an ‘unfair and undemocratic attack on free speech’, warn newspaper editors



As the fallout from the Leveson Inquiry continues, newspaper editors are warning that proposed new libel costs put the very freedom of the press at stake. Michael Alexander reports.
Imagine winning a court case but then being told you have to pay your defeated opponent’s costs.
That is the scenario press bosses are warning of for local newspapers if a controversial new legal requirement goes ahead – though campaigners for victims of press injustice are strongly in support of the measure.
The background is Lord Justice Leveson’s report into the press and phone hacking four years ago, which has since seen some of the biggest changes to press self-regulation in decades, affecting the entire industry.
