South-East Region: London
C. B. Fawcett’s system of distinguishing regions inevitably involved him in defining a particularly large region for the national and imperial metropolis and its hinterland. The South-East Region thus contains a quarter of all the parliamentary constituencies of England and in this political sense is half as large again as the next largest region, Lancastria. It is therefore not inappropriate for purposes of analysis to divide the region into two main parts, and to allot a chapter to each. We may devote the first chapter to the inner metropolitan region and the second to the outer suburbs and the remoter districts. To this end we may find it most convenient to define the inner metropolitan region as that contained within the boundaries of the London County Council (L.C.C.), which was established shortly after our period begins, in 1889.
