The Bank of England Act 1998 says that the Bank "shall publish minutes of the [MPC] meeting before the end of the period of 6 weeks beginning with the day of the meeting." Until October 1998 the minutes were published about five weeks after the meeting.
The Monetary Policy Committee announced on 8 October 1998 that it would publish the minutes of its monthly meetings on the Wednesday of the second week after the meetings take place.
To accompany the minutes we also make available a "Glossary and other information" page (see Related Links).
This page lists Monetary Policy Committee Minutes from 1997 to 2005. For minutes from 2006 see Related Links.
