Having problem importing widescreen video into Premier Elements 15. Set new project to PAL widescreen 16:9 format and force all imports to this format. Import my video but this then displays as a squashed 4:3 format despite the imported video having properties saying it is a PAL widescreen 16:9 format file. Using the same import setup with other video editing software the imported video displays with a 16:9 aspect ratio. If I import and save video from another programme then load it into Premier 15 it displays as I would expect with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Am I new to Premier elements so am I doing anything wrong?

You don't say what your source is for your video and/or what model of camcorder you've captured your video from -- but this is sometimes the result of your video not properly conveying its non-square pixel information. This used to be more of an issue back when people edited tape-based video. Modern video formats use square pixels.

That said, right-click on your clip(s) in the Project Assets panel and select Interpret Footage and try some of its settings.
