It includes:

● Press releases, transcripts and additional related statements by government, opposition, and other parties, as well as industry reaction;

Capital Monitor is a great way to obtain a broad overview of an issue which conveniently brings information together. It enables you to research the background and context of a topic and track its development through to implementation and legislation.

Materials are added in full text almost as soon as they are made available. Coverage starts from 1996 for many of the materials.
