Ms. Gordon

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what sites in the ownership of the London Docklands development corporation will be used to provide alternative housing for the tenants on St. Vincent's estate in Westferry road and the Causeway, the Barleymow estate, Narrow street, dwellings in Ming street and Dingle gardens, and Dolphin house in Poplar high street; what is the timetable for the demolition of the estates; what commitment the London Docklands development corporation has given to keep together the established communities in those estates; whether tenants will be given the opportunity to remain in their dwellings if they are not required for the construction of the road; what is the estimated cost of the rehousing of the 650 tenants to the London Docklands development corporation; and whether the London Docklands development corporation has been allowed to provide a direct subsidy to housing associations to build alternative housing on the lines of a housing association grant.

Mr. Trippier

These are detailed matters primarily for the LDDC and the borough to work out within the agreement they have reached.
