As I stated during recent oral questions [Hansard, 14 September 2020, Column 3]. The evaluation took longer due to covid-19. It has shown that there are three themes: the need to change the six-month rule, to improve consistency and to raise awareness of the support. The Department is working at pace across government to bring forward proposals.
