Alert me about debates like this

May I say what a great pleasure it is to take part in this debate? These debates about London matter. For many years I have regarded myself as somebody who is from Middlesex rather than London, and I still do so, but I have to respect the fact that London is now something a bit bigger. When considering these Committees-I understand that we are considering who will sit on the London Committee-I want to know the regionality of the proposed members in the context of the historic counties. I am thinking hard about that. The area represented by Ms Buck, who is present, is probably in the historic county of Middlesex, although I do not know whether she regards it as such. The constituency of Jeremy Corbyn is a little more difficult for me; I do not know whether anyone can help me with the regionality of Islington.
