Your eyes and ears in parliament
It’s 08.00 hours: a typical day when parliament is sitting. Our monitoring unit is scanning and scrutinising the day’s parliamentary business from Holyrood, Westminster, Strasbourg and Brussels. They collate what’s relevant to you. They then add party political comment and government news. Next they check the main news and broadcast outlets. Finally, all that’s important to you is funnelled into a daily summary for electronic delivery direct to your desktop. ETA? 11.00 hours. Fast, accurate, relevant.
But what if you’re in a meeting, without access to your pc and unable to listen to the radio, yet wanting to be kept on the pulse, ahead of the game, keeping tabs on developments? We’ll have ascertained this at our initial briefing with you: not just the sphere of information you require but also the frequency. We’ll text an update to your Blackberry. You’ll be in the know. You’ll have the advantage: to play how you will. Colleagues might wonder how you manage to stay briefed all the time.
