Case Study:

An example of an instance in which our parliamentary monitoring service has proved crucial to a client in the past is the work we conducted for an organisation based in the telecommunications industry. The company were facing a severe threat to their business due to a proposed regulatory change which was being agitated for by a coalition of backbench MPs. Through careful parliamentary monitoring of telecommunications issues, utilising resources such as Hansard records but backed by our personal knowledge of the politicians involved, we were able to inform the client of relevant developments and information which helped to shape a successful counter campaign against the proposed new regulation.
