Public Health Restrictions: Government Economic Support (13 Oct 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: The Government have said that schools will be among the last to close under any covid restrictions or lockdowns.

Gang-associated Girls — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (6 Oct 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Christopher. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Vauxhall (Florence Eshalomi) on securing this important debate. She made many profound points and was right to highlight the imbalanced focus on the harms experienced by boys in gangs, versus those experienced by gang-associated girls. That has led to disproportionate funding of...

Unduly Lenient Sentence Scheme (5 Oct 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: On the point about improving the scheme, the Solicitor General mentioned awareness as an issue. He also mentioned the victims code coming up soon, but can he enlighten me as to whether he envisages there being greater awareness for victims and their families of the existence of the scheme? Many of them are not aware and do not know about it, so they cannot bring cases to his attention.

Unduly Lenient Sentence Scheme (5 Oct 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that there are strict deadlines for the unduly lenient sentence scheme, which sometimes mean that a victim or member of a victim’s family who wishes to challenge a sentence is unable to do so because they have not received proper advice?

Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Post-16 Education (1 Oct 2020)

Students’ Return to Universities (29 Sep 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: Students from my constituency and elsewhere who are away at university for the first time are being put in the impossible situation of facing huge restrictions on their education and social life, but they are still being expected to pay full fees and rent. That is both grossly unjust and unfair. Will the Secretary of State tell me what plans the Government have to address that issue?

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 11 - Modifications in connection with the Northern Ireland Protocol (21 Sep 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: I shall speak against clauses 42 and 45 standing part of the Bill. When five out of the last six leaders of the Conservative party and all five living Prime Ministers are on the same side of the argument, it is time to sit up and take note. It is not often that I agree with the right hon. Member for Maidenhead (Mrs May), but her remarks earlier in the debate were absolutely right. The...

Sentencing White Paper (16 Sep 2020)

Bambos Charalambous: I welcome aspects of this White Paper, especially paragraphs 239 to 242, which acknowledge the role that homelessness plays in reoffending.

What steps is the Secretary of State taking to reconsider people being released on a Friday?
