DIARY: Fraser adds the EC to his current list of employers

Former Foreign Office special adviser Maurice Fraser has added another string to an already straining bow with his appointment as consultant on economic and monetary union to the European Commission’s UK office.

Former Foreign Office special adviser Maurice Fraser has added another

string to an already straining bow with his appointment as consultant on

economic and monetary union to the European Commission’s UK office.



Fraser, who advised three foreign secretaries, will be keeping the EC

informed on the EMU debate in the UK. He already keeps himself busy with

a visiting fellowship at the London School of Economics, journalism, a

senior consultancy at APCO UK, and as adviser to several companies.



Fraser, 36, stresses that the EC job is not a ‘propagandist or PR role’.

He says: ‘There is more detailed work on EMU in the UK, from the City,

the legal sector, universities, think-tanks and Westminster, than

anywhere else.



‘Basically, I will be bringing all that together, both for and against

arguments, and reporting it to the Commission.’



Despite his many commitments, Fraser tells me he still has time to

pursue some leisure activity and ‘to torment my family’.
