It's a fungal attack, Taphrina deformans, peach leaf curl. I have no idea how to treat it but can ask a friend who was head of plant pathology for a large firm.

Ok Great thank you

I met up with my friend who is an expert on plant diseases and she was on the ball straight away.

She said in the past the recommended treatment was with a copper based fungicide but these are not approved any more. She says the spores overwinter in bark and buds but with a light infestation you can pick off the leaves affected when the bubbles are green or pink but before white spores appear and  destroy them. Feed the plant to make up for the loss of photosynthetic area of leaves.
