County Of Middlesex (No.2)

EDM number 1082 in 1990-91, proposed by Michael Shersby on 08/07/1991.

That this House takes note of the fact that the ancient geographical county of Middlesex still exists and its existence was in no way jeopardised by the creation of administrative counties in 1988-89, or by the reorganisation of local government in 1963 to 1965, 1972 to 1974 and 1973 to 1975; recognises that administrative authorities bearing the name 'county' were created solely for the purpose of discharging the functions of the first tier of local government; believes that it is important to inhabitants of all geographical counties that their history and their cultural, social and sporting traditions should be enhanced and maintained; calls upon the Secretary of State for Transport to facilitate the erection of boundary posts for the county of Middlesex on all motorways and trunk roads for which he is responsible to indicate to motorists which geographical county they are entering and to instruct all legal authorities to do likewise on roads and highways that they are responsible for; and calls for the Ordnance Survey to be empowered and instructed to show the ancient geographical county of Middlesex on their maps, in addition to, or instead of, the administrative areas that currently appear.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
