Freedom of Information

    Freedom of Information: A Practical Guide for UK Journalists is written to inform, instruct and inspire journalists on the investigative possibilities offered by the Freedom of Information Act.

The book is brimming with illuminating and relevant examples of the Freedom of Information Act being used by journalists, alongside a range of helpful features, including: * end of chapter lists of tips and learning points * sections addressing the different areas of FOI requests * text boxes on key thoughts and cases * interviews with leading contemporary journalists and figures working with Freedom of Information requests.
