Backbench Business: Child Poverty: London (22 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: Does my hon. Friend agree with me that, as Save the Children found out, in almost half the families living in poverty the youngest child is under the age of five? Is it not therefore crucial that the Government target help on low-income families in the early years?

Disabled People and Economic Growth: Cancer Strategy (22 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: The 62-day target has not been met since 2014, so the issue has been around for a while. Does the hon. Lady agree that more funding is needed if the target is to be met as soon as possible?

Backbench Business: Refugee Children: Family Reunion in the UK — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (22 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech, and I congratulate him on securing this important debate. On the difficulty of the procedures involved in refugee family cases, is he as appalled as I am that legal aid has not been available for such cases since 2012? Does he agree that without legal aid assistance, applicants rarely know what evidence is required, and that such evidence is key...

Disabled People and Economic Growth (22 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: I thank the hon. Lady for securing the debate and for the examples she has given of good practices in certain organisations, but is she aware that only 16% of people with autism are in full-time employment and only 32% of autistic adults are in any kind of employment at all? Does she agree that much more needs to be done to close the autism employment gap?

Business of the House (22 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: One of my constituents, Ian Ackley, was the initial whistleblower on, and a victim of, the prolific serial child sex abuser and paedophile Barry Bennell. There has been no Government statement or debate about this historical child sexual abuse and what is being done to make sure that it never happens again. Will the Leader of the House make time available for this important issue to be debated?

Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap (22 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: How many and what proportion of employers within the scope of the gender pay gap regulations have published gender pay gap data.

Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap (22 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: What sanctions will be put in place for those companies that do not meet their obligations to publish their gender pay data by the deadline?

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [Lords] (20 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: As most hon. Members have stated in this debate, money laundering and corruption are huge issues worldwide. Although I welcome some of the measures in the Bill, I do not believe that it goes far enough. The Minister for Europe and the Americas has already been made aware—it was mentioned in an intervention—that, as part of the recently agreed fifth EU anti-money laundering...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Leaving the EU: Diplomatic Co-operation (20 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: What assessment he has made of the strength of the UK’s future diplomatic co-operation with its current EU partners after leaving the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Leaving the EU: Diplomatic Co-operation (20 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: The Foreign Secretary claimed last week that it would be “intolerable” for the UK not to set its own regulations after Brexit. The next day, a Harvard survey of UK importers and exporters found that the last thing that they want is the dual regulatory burden of having to comply with both UK and EU rules. Will the Foreign Secretary tell us who is right?

Petition - Closure of Lloyds Bank Branch in Woolston: Autism: Educational Outcomes (6 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: Does the hon. Lady agree that there is also a need for speech therapists, child psychologists, occupational therapists and other health professionals to support the special needs of those children in being diagnosed with autism in the first place?

Baby Leave for Members of Parliament: Hospital Car Parking Charges (1 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Harlow (Robert Halfon) on securing this important debate. It is clear from hon. Members’ speeches that the scandal of hospital parking charges must come to an end. Gravely ill people and people visiting relatives while in a state of distress should not be treated as cash cows by hospital car park operators. It is shocking that half of all trusts...

Baby Leave for Members of Parliament: Hospital Car Parking Charges (1 Feb 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. People in rural areas or who live far away from their local hospitals are unfairly affected by having poor transport networks to ferry them to hospitals, so they have no choice but to travel by car. The right hon. Member for Hemel Hempstead (Sir Mike Penning) made the excellent point that other emergency workers are not being required to pay to park...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Welsh Economy (31 Jan 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: What recent discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on the effect on the Welsh economy of the UK leaving the EU.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Welsh Economy (31 Jan 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: Will the Minister reassure the House and businesses across Wales by confirming that arrangements will be put in place to ensure that new trade deals negotiated after leaving the European Union do not undermine devolved policies?

Tyres (Buses and Coaches) Bill: Rail Connectivity (19 Jan 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: In my constituency, the extension of the London underground to Cockfosters allowed the area to flourish almost a century ago. Does my hon. Friend agree that transport connectivity is vital for social mobility and essential if an area is to grow and flourish?

Parole Board: Transparency and Victim Support (19 Jan 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: Following on from the comments of the hon. Member for Eddisbury (Antoinette Sandbach), will the Minister be looking at how the CPS and the police deal with cases where it comes to light that, in cases of serious offences such as this, there are further victims? John Worboys was convicted of the rape of and sexual assault against 12 women, but more than 85 others came forward after the event,...

Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill (19 Jan 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: Many tenants who are in temporary accommodation with private landlords have been placed there by local authorities. Does my hon. Friend agree that many tenants have difficulty dealing with that dilemma?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Saving for rights etc. under section 2(1) of the ECA (16 Jan 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: I will be supporting amendment 57 and other provisions. I rise to speak to new clause 16, which is in my name. I will not be pushing it to a vote, because it is a probing provision. The new clause seeks to ensure that there is no regression in our equality protection as we leave the EU and following the repeal of the charter of fundamental rights. That principle has already been agreed by the...

Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee: Misuse of Xanax (15 Jan 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: Until five months ago, I was oblivious to the existence of the drug Xanax. It was only after I was contacted by a concerned mother that I became fully aware of the problem that is going on right under our noses. I am holding the first debate about Xanax in Parliament to raise awareness about a problem that could be widespread. Xanax, or alprazolam, is a sedative from the benzodiazepine family...
