There are currently 32 trials underway which will run across the year, with final trial schemes due to conclude by 31 March 2022. This is an extension to the original deadline of 30 November 2021. It takes into account the slower start to trials as a result of the pandemic and will allow us more time to gather evidence as lockdown eases. The Department has in place a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation programme for the trials. A final report will be published in spring 2022.
