English term or phrase:parliament most of all
Those of us involved in the formulation of this policy should not forget that we have been pioneers in laying the first building blocks of European legislation and policy on such a difficult subject as migration and asylum, and Parliament most of all.
I'm not sure what that bit refers to. Is it:
1)should not forget (the Parliament particularly shouldn't forget)
2)have been pioneers (the Parliament has had a remarkable influence on this matter).
Explanation: Those of us involved in the formulation of this policy, especially the Parliament, should not forget that we have been pioneers in laying the first building blocks of European legislation and policy on such a difficult subject as migration and asylum.
