Finnish MEPs meet Finland's permanent representative to the EU, Eikka Kosonen, once a month, for an exchange of views.
We are all paid at the same rate as Finnish national MPs, which is about 3,400 euros per month. The highest-paid MEPs, the Italians, earn nearly three times as much.
The amount of mail I get varies a lot, sometimes just a handful of letters per week. But recently I said something about wolves - a protected species in Finland - which triggered an avalanche of correspondence.
