Further to your answer to question 2014/5023 I am aware that there will be a net increase in homes on the schemes. But you didn't answer the original question. Can you tell me, for each of the four projects, the number of existing homes that are expected to be demolished, broken down by tenure? Where the estate regeneration fund is only financing a phase, for which you gave new build figures in answer to question 2014/5022, please only cite demolitions connected with that phase.
