The Financial Services Act (2012) requires the Bank’s Court of Directors to publish the minutes of its meetings. These are published, as required by statute, six weeks after the meeting to which they relate, or, if there is no further meeting within that period, then two weeks after the date of the next meeting.
Monetary Policy Summary and Minutes
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.
From August 2015, the MPC's decisions on interest rates are announced on a Thursday at 12 noon. The Monetary Policy Summary and the Minutes of the MPC Meeting are published simultaneously with the decision.

|Foreign Exchange Joint Standing Committee Minutes|

|Securities Lending and Repo Committee Minutes|

|Sterling Money Markets Liaison Group Minutes|
The group meets quarterly as a means for the Bank and market practitioners to maintain regular contact with each other at a senior level. In addition to members from the market, who come from a broad range of institutions, there are also members from trade organisations and official bodies. Others are occasionally invited to discuss matters of particular interest. An article in the Winter 2001 Bank of England Quarterly Bulletin put the work of the MMLG and the Securities Lending and Repo Committee in context with the Bank's other market liaison and intelligence activities.
