Update to the frequency of future publications

After consulting with users on the frequency of future publications, we have reduced publications from quarterly to bi-annually. This will free up resources for other analyses.

Under the Code of Practice for Official Statistics, we publish a timetable of statistical releases for twelve months ahead[1].
