Peter Gerald "Gerry" Malone (born 21 July 1950) is a British Conservative politician who was an MP from 1983–87 and 1992–97.
He was an unsuccessful Conservative candidate in the February 1974 general election in the Glasgow Provan constituency, where he was defeated by Labour's Hugh Brown. He made other unsuccessful attempts to be elected to parliament at Glasgow Pollok in October 1974, and in the Glasgow Hillhead by-election in 1982 where he lost the traditionally Conservative seat to Roy Jenkins of the SDP.
MP for Aberdeen South
Seat of Winchester
He re-entered parliament in 1992, representing the "safe" Conservative seat of Winchester. He was appointed a Minister of State at the Department of Health in 1994, when Virginia Bottomley was the Secretary of State.
1997 contested seat of Winchester
Malone unexpectedly lost his Winchester seat at the 1997 general election by two votes, to the Liberal Democrat candidate Mark Oaten. Malone challenged the result in the high court, and it was declared void, causing a by-election. Malone trailed Oaten by 21,566 votes in the resulting by-election.
