The 2015 general election is rapidly approaching. What will the UK Government look like after the 7 May 2015? What are the challenges that lay ahead?
Gavin Freeguard from the Institute for Government uses open data charts from the Whitehall Monitor to pinpoint some of the pressures that could face a new government and discusses how the UK can continue to lead the open data agenda after the election.
Gavin joined the Institute For Government in August 2013 and his work is currently focused on Whitehall Monitor and transparency in government contracts. He was previously political adviser on culture, media and sport to Harriet Harman MP and, before that, deputy director of the Orwell Prize and senior researcher at the Media Standards Trust.
