Judgement for the case Beach v Freeson

An MP had heard complaints from constituents about a solicitors firm and wrote a letter to the Law Society detailing the complaints. It was accepted that the letter WAS defamatory but that, since the MP was acting within his duty, his letter was privileged and he wasn’t liable for libel.
