Bug Description

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.

Steps to reproduce:

- On the "try or install screen", select try 'your flavour', then launch ubiquity via -the desktop icon in the live session.
- 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.
