Anthea Elizabeth Joy McIntyre (born 29 June 1954) is an English Conservative Member of the European Parliament for the West Midlands, serving since 2011.


Born in London, the daughter of David Scott McIntyre and Joy Irma Stratford McIntyre, she was educated at the independent Claremont School, Esher, and Queen's College, London. As a business woman in Ross-on-Wye, she has been a partner in the Wythall Estate since 1976; in 1985 she became a consultant with MCP Management Consultants, then was a partner in the company from 1991 to 2011.[1]

McIntyre stood unsuccessfully for parliament as a Conservative for Redditch in the 1997 general election and for Shrewsbury and Atcham in the 2001 general election. She was also unsuccessful as a Conservative candidate in the 2009 European election for the West Midlands constituency, but in December 2011 she was appointed to serve as a member for that constituency in the European Parliament without a new election. This was because the Lisbon Treaty had enlarged the European Parliament by eighteen, and one of these new seats came to the United Kingdom. Britain decided to allocate this to the West Midlands regional constituency, on the basis of population statistics. The results of the 2009 European elections were then considered to decide who would have won the additional seat if it had existed then. The result of this was that it was awarded to McIntyre.[2]

She serves on the European Parliament's Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee.

Personal life

In 1999 Anthea McIntyre married Frank Myers, MBE. She lives in Walford, Ross-on-Wye.[1]
