Lynn Wyeth is currently undertaking a PhD at De Montfort University, Leicester, in the Business & Law faculty, researching the impact of Freedom of Information on Local Government when used by the media, politicians and pressure groups, and assessing any unitended consequences.
She will shortly be looking for Freedom of Information officers working in Local Authorities plus journalists and members of pressure groups who use FOI who are willing to take part in interviews, or who would just be happy to answer questionnaires/surveys.
