Most of the figures above are projections and we still have work to do before the pounds land in people’s pockets.  Any projections that are not realised are removed. Some figures, for example energy savings and welfare benefits take-up, will be realised over a year; however, others, for example boiler replacements and sanitary product distribution, will be realised immediately.
