Home Department: Hate Crime (9 Nov 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: Tell MAMA is running its “No2H8” campaign this month, and the Home Office has acknowledged in its own stats that this year’s rise in hate crimes is partly driven by far-right groups targeting Black Lives Matter campaigners. Will the Minister tell me what the Government are doing to support groups that they have been recognised as victims of an increase in hate crime?

Covid-19: Emergency Transport and Travel Measures in London Boroughs (4 Nov 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: Is not part of the problem the lack of consultation? Has not that been caused by the Government’s insistence that the schemes be implemented straightaway within an eight-week period, not allowing any consultation with communities or very limited consultation at best?

Bambos Charalambous: What steps he is taking to help ensure access to justice.

Justice: Access to Justice (3 Nov 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: The Government have failed to provide any significant additional support for legal aid practitioners. The breaking point for many firms is likely to come in 2021, especially as the volume of completions in the Crown court remains low. Many legal aid firms and practitioners urgently need financial support to survive, so will the Government announce new measures to support legal aid lawyers...

Animal Welfare (Sentencing) Bill (23 Oct 2020)

Ministry of Justice: Legal Aid Spending (22 Oct 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms McDonagh. I will be as brief as I can. I congratulate the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Sir Robert Neill) who chairs the Select Committee. It was a real pleasure to serve under him for the two years I was on the Justice Committee. I start by pointing out—as already mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member for Hammersmith (Andy...

Bambos Charalambous: My hon. Friend is exactly right. Many people have been confused about what status they have because of the emails they have received.

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill: After Clause 1 - Impact of section 1 on the social care sector (19 Oct 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: The right hon. Gentleman makes an excellent point. We need to ensure that there is documentation, because we have seen the failings of other IT systems in the past and cannot allow that to happen again, especially on an issue as important as people’s rights. Although we are open to the Government’s aspiration to move towards a digitally-focused system for all UK immigration, we are also...

Lords amendment 1 would require the Secretary...

She has saved me time by covering many of the points I would have made. I will focus on people with hidden disabilities who are unable to wear masks. I was contacted earlier...

Covid-19 Update (15 Oct 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: I wrote to the Secretary of State on 16 September about the inadequacies of track and trace, and I acknowledge what he has said today about the need for local and national teamwork, but I need to be further reassured that he will get track and trace right, because that is central to dealing with the covid-19 pandemic.

Chinese and East Asian Communities: Racism during Covid-19 (13 Oct 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point on an issue that I will come to later in my speech. Training is absolutely essential so that people recognise and treat seriously any forms of racism, so that it is dealt with swiftly and so that people are not frightened to report it. It is deeply disappointing to hear the President of the United States, Donald Trump, call coronavirus the China virus...

Chinese and East Asian Communities: Racism during Covid-19 (13 Oct 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: Again, my hon. Friend makes an excellent point. Where there is a lack of empathy, there is also a lack of cases that proceed to trial. I am not aware of the actual figures for this issue, but rape is also an issue where the lack of empathy with victims leads to fewer cases going to trial. The victims do not want to take it further because they do not feel they will be treated seriously. There...
