The restructuring provision relates to the remaining costs associated with the closure of various Heat Treatment sites.

The Group provides for the costs of environmental remediation that have been identified, either as part of acquisition due diligence, or in other circumstances where remediation by the Group is required. This provision is reviewed semi-annually. The environmental provision has been separated into Restructuring Environmental and Environmental, to separately identify environmental provisions relating to the restructuring programme from those arising in the ordinary course of business.

Cash outflows in respect of these liabilities are expected to occur within 5 years.
