Peter Black (born 30 January 1960) is a Welsh Liberal Democrat politician, and Member of the National Assembly for Wales for South Wales West Region.

He was educated at Wirral Grammer School for Boys and the University of Wales, Swansea, graduating in English and History. A Councillor for the Cwmbwrla ward on Swansea City Council, he was leader of the Liberal Democrat Group 1984-99. He previously worked as a research assistant for West Glamorgan Social Services and for the Land Registry for Wales. He is a past Chair of the Welsh Liberal Democrats and of the Party's Finance and Administration Committee.

Black fought Swansea East at the Assembly elections in 1999 and 2003, but entered the Assembly as the lead candidate on the Welsh Liberal Democrat regional list for South Wales West. He was the lead candidate again in 2007. A former Deputy Minister in the 2000-03 Labour/Welsh Liberal Democrat coalition administration, he chaired the Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills Committee in the second Assembly and now sits on the Communities Scrutiny Committee as the Welsh Liberal Democrat Social Justice and Housing Spokesperson. He is a member of the Assembly Commission with responsibility for ICT and promoting the Assembly.

After Charles Kennedy's resignation in 2006, Black supported Simon Hughes in the ensuing leadership contest.

Black is married and enjoys films, theatre and poetry.
