Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: The hon. Gentleman makes an excellent point. The NICE guidelines are drawn up by experts who are qualified in their field, and it is only with the collaboration of the experts that the guidelines are set. They are set by experts and should be strictly adhered to. The delay between referral and diagnosis not only causes more potential harm to children, but leads to untold stress and anxiety...

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: The right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) makes a good point about the need for proper assessment of when the final diagnosis is actually made. It may not be at the first appointment; more than one appointment may be needed before the final diagnosis is established. It is absolutely vital that these diagnoses are made as soon as possible.

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: My hon. Friend makes the excellent point that the delay in diagnosing autism leads to further economic and social concerns that may have an adverse impact on society in general. That point was very well made. NICE also has a quality standard for adults with autism, which again recommends that people should have a diagnostic assessment within three months of referral. NICE’s rationale for...

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. Sometimes the private assessment is not recognised by the local CCG, so referral does not take place as planned, leading to more stress on families and children. I have enormous sympathy with her constituent who has faced that situation. We all know that the early years of a child’s life are so vital for their long-term development. If a child does...

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. Other additional conditions can develop, and suicidal tendencies are one of them. Other mental health conditions can similarly manifest themselves in young people in particular. I congratulate her on looking at that research.

Autism Diagnosis — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (13 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. Sometimes the behaviours for autism in women and girls are not picked up as much as they are in boys, because they do not always display the behaviours that would lead someone to detect autism. I wish her constituent well for the future. The lengthy delay in diagnosis can lead not only to the development of further secondary conditions to autism, but...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. In August, I visited Cyprus, where my parents were born. During my visit I had the pleasure of meeting the British high commissioner. I was surprised to learn from him that more than 40,000 UK citizens live in Cyprus, which, as hon. Members will be aware, is an EU member. Some of those 40,000 citizens are retired people who have...

Princess Royal Hospital Telford: UK Nationals in the EU: Rights — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: I am in total accord with my hon. Friend’s very good point. People who have been resident in the UK for many years have received deportation letters. One of my constituents received such a letter after being resident for more than 20 years. The argument that the Prime Minister and her team would be able to negotiate a better deal for UK citizens living in EU countries is fanciful at best....

BBC Transparency — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (7 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: Is my hon. Friend aware that the BBC pay gap is 10%, but nationally it is 18%? The BBC has commissioned an audit of pay to resolve issues relating to pay. It has offered to deal with any issues that arise in the long term.

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: Although any attempts to clamp down on tax avoidance schemes are welcome, I do not feel that the proposed measures go far enough or that HMRC has the capacity to go after corporations that have in the past paid less tax than their cleaners. By 2021, HMRC is projected to have lost 34% of its staff since 2010, including those in departments dealing with the very largest corporations. That is a...

Taxable Benefits (6 Sep 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: Does my hon. Friend agree that local authorities and the Local Government Association could play a greater role in monitoring the amount of waste going to landfill?

Bills Presented: Tuition Fees (19 Jul 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: I was lucky enough to go to Liverpool Polytechnic to study law in 1987 and have my tuition fees paid in full. I am sure many of the people here in this Chamber who went into higher education also had their fees paid. I do not know whether the prospect of having substantial debt at the end of my studies would have put me off, but it would have made me stop and think. That is the crux of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Jobcentre Closures (19 Jul 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: What assessment he has made of the potential effect of the planned closure of job centres in Scotland on local communities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Jobcentre Closures (19 Jul 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: As yet, no equality impact assessment of the closures has been published. Will the Secretary of State tell this House whether the Government plan to publish such an assessment, and, if so, when?

Schools Update (17 Jul 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: Does the Secretary of State accept that, with schools having to pay £575 million in employer contributions to the teachers’ pension scheme and £625 million in national insurance contributions, and with inflation at 2.9%, the £1.3 billion that has been announced will barely cover those costs?

G20 (10 Jul 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: Will the Prime Minister confirm whether she spoke to President Erdoğan of Turkey at the G20 summit? If so, did she ask him about the reasons why the Cyprus talks in Switzerland broke down again without resolution last week?

Global Education: G20 Summit — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (6 Jul 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the problems in education is that teachers are often poorly paid, if they are paid at all, and have to do other jobs to supplement their pay as teachers? That results in poorer experiences in classrooms where teachers are provided.

Public Sector Pay Cap (5 Jul 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: My union Unison represents workers across the public sector. The hard-working nurses, teaching assistants, cleaners and local government workers in my constituency of Enfield, Southgate, who are not subject to increments have been asking me when they will get fair pay for the hard work they do for all of us. Does the Chief Secretary agree with me and some of her colleagues that in the light...

Education: Public Funding (4 Jul 2017)

Bambos Charalambous: Is the Minister aware of the impact that increased national insurance contributions and pension contributions are having on schools in Enfield, Southgate, resulting in cuts in the classroom and impacts on learning and on assisting children with behavioural issues?
