The Monetary Policy Committee issues minutes of its meetings with a two week lag.
Investors who want a more detailed description of Bank of England opinions will generally read the minutes closely. The MPC may issue a statement after its monthly meeting but the minutes will be much more detailed. In particular they will reveal who voted for and against the Committee's decisions and provide a more detailed description of the MPC's thinking. As such, the minutes are a market mover as analysts parse each word looking for clues to future policy.
