Domestic Violence Refuges: Funding — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Dec 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Jess Phillips) on securing this important debate. Women who need to escape their fate at the hands of an abuser need somewhere safe to go, but the effect of the Government’s new funding model would be to block off those escape routes. Since 2012, a third of...

Prison Reform and Safety (7 Dec 2017)

With £3.954 billion of annual expenditure, prisons take up...

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point, and I agree 100% with what she has said: ending the pay cap would be a good start to addressing inequality. Decent pay for a hard day’s work is an easy concept to grasp, but it does not fit with the Government’s view that austerity and stripping the state to the bone are the only way to ensure that privatisation happens hard and fast. Just...

Bambos Charalambous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship in this important debate, Mr Robertson. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow North East (Mr Sweeney) on securing it.

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: I wish to focus on three areas of deficiency in the Budget: education, social care and the public sector. Many schools across the country are struggling financially. The Chancellor, while promising an extra £40 million to train future maths teachers, seems sadly to have missed the point.
