“I am delighted we have delivered on our promise to reform Defamation Law - this Bill is good news for science. However, the work does not stop here. I encourage all who care about protecting scientific debate to respond to the consultation - tell us what works and what should be improved. I am inviting key members of the science community to discuss the Bill with me next week.”
