Administrative/Biographical history:

The first election of Middlesex County Councillors took place on 29 January 1889 and the first meeting of the Provisional Council was held at Middlesex Guildhall on 7 February 1889. At a meeting on 21 March 1889, the formation of committees was considered. Members were elected to the Finance, Highways, General Purposes, Parliamentary, Asylum, Contagious Diseases (Animals) Act, and Stand Joint Committees.

As the work of the Council increased so too did the number and range of committees. Joint committees were also organised with other relevant bodies such as neighbouring local authorities or lower tier Middlesex authorities.
