Doing iso testing this morning, I indeed see this on the Try/install
screen as well.

So seems this issue has regressed further to effect both install paths.

** Description changed:

  Kubuntu Or Ubuntu Mate 17.10 Alpha 2 iso image
  Build 20170725
  
  or
  
  Ubuntu daily iso build
  
  EDIT: This only seems to happen when you launch ubiquity in a live
  session. Starting the installation from the "try or install screen"
  instead seems to correctly set the matching keyboard layout by default.
  
+ EDIT2: 28/09/2017 - beta2 testing - This has now regressed so it seems
+ to occur when installing from BOTH the Try/Install screen, and from  the
+ live session install links
+ 
  Steps to reproduce:
  
- - On the "try or install screen", select try 'your flavour', then launch 
ubiquity via -the desktop icon in the live session.
+ - Start installation via either the Try/install screen. or the live session 
install links.
  - On "Where are you page" set region and time zone to "United Kingdom" 
(London in Mate & Ubuntu's case)
  - Go to next page "Keyboard Layout"
  
  What happens:
  
  I am offered by default the English (US) keyboard layout and variant.
  
  What should happen:
  
  In 17.04 and previous ubiquity versions, the appropriate English (UK)
  option was chosen/presented by default to match my location settings
  from the previous screen.
  
  A regression like this could result in someone who is inattentive, or
  perhaps does many installs and simply assumes that the matching happens
  so does not notice, getting the wrong default keyboard setting on fresh
  install.
