Because of the size and constitutional structure of London, a non-statutory title and office of ‘Representative Deputy Lieutenant’ was created in 1951 by Viscount Alanbrooke. The Lord-Lieutenant selects one of his Deputies to represent him in each of the 32 London Boroughs (except the City) shown below. Their main functions are to represent the Lieutenancy and occasionally the Lord-Lieutenant at civic and other official functions, and also to promote voluntary, charitable and youth activities within their borough.
