Peter Mason

Peter has lived in Cambridge for thirty-four years, originally having been born and brought up in Liverpool. He is 57 and is married with one teenage daughter. He spends his spare time with family, studying European affairs, and training and exercising his border collies.

Having originally trained as an engineering craftsman Peter decided to pursue a career in personnel management. He has extensive experience in the field and has worked in a wide range of industrial and commercial sectors in East Anglia. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, a Member of the Organisation Development Network, and is currently studying for an LLM in European Union Law.

Peter is particularly interested in how EU employment legislation affects the innovative small and medium enterprises in our region, EU competition law, and free movement and mutual recognition in the single market. He is concerned that the demands arising from the Common Fisheries policy are disproportionate in the way they impact on the small scale independent beach launched fishing operations found along the North Sea coasts. MEP’s must be prepared to insist that proper scrutiny is given to the effect of all proposed legislation and its impact on our small businesses and communities before it reaches the statute book.

Peter wants to see a truly democratic European Union where no law is passed without a positive vote in the European Parliament and ratified by votes in the national parliaments.

  1. In my opinion, this man would make the best MEP for the eastern region.
