Can you confirm the lapsing date for Statistics for Business please? The arrangements document Version 21 states this as 31/07/22, this is 2 years later than that stated above. Can you advise?


Hi Fiona,

The date in the post is the lapsing date, however the lapsing date indicates when the unit entered the 2 year lapse period. The unit continues to be available for delivery until the end date given in the Group Award Specification/Arrangements – 31/07/22.

I hope that clarifies.
