The U.K. coalition government looks set to overhaul the country’s libel laws after Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg on Friday set out plans to bring in new defamation laws and end “libel tourism.”

In a speech on freedom of information and civil liberties given at the Institute for Government earlier Friday, Clegg said the government intends to publish a draft defamation bill in the spring to enhance freedom of speech and end the practice of so-called libel tourism.
