Lubuntu 14.04 prerelease UK keyboard not UK

I installed Lubuntu 14.04 prerelease
about a week ago.

I now notice that although I installed it with UK
the keyboard software is a US keyboard
so @ is in the wrong place
and key [£] gives [#] etc etc.

Shouldnt a UK keyboard have installed itself?

I cant find anywhere on the menus to change the keyboard from US to UK,
and there seems to be no [Help] option in the menus

Hi George,

Until Trusty is released as 14.04 LTS you can expect problems from day
to day. It is still in the development phase. We who run the development
release are prepared for such problems and ready to report bugs to
Launchpad. This way we help the developers.

Best regards
