Erasmus Plus Programme (21 Jun 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: Is my hon. Friend aware of the Universities UK report that says that students who study overseas are significantly more likely to enter managerial positions within 10 years of graduating, half as likely to be long-term unemployed as their non-mobile colleagues, and more likely to start their own companies than other graduates? Does he therefore agree that making sure that the Erasmus+...

Refugee Family Reunion (21 Jun 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: This is the 65th anniversary of the signing of the European convention on human rights.

The article states: “Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondence.” My hon. Friend the Member for Stretford and Urmston (Kate...

Refugee Family Reunion (21 Jun 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: I thank my hon. Friend for his comments. He is right that, given the uncertainty about what will happen post Brexit, we cannot be sure of anything, and these issues need to be spelled out and confirmed as soon as possible. Why would anyone want to deprive these child refugees of the right to be with their parents and families? These are vulnerable children, some suffering from post-traumatic...

Refugee Family Reunion (21 Jun 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention. He is right about refugee camps needing more support and the provision of education. Many people spend years and years in refugee camps and their education suffers. However, we want to tackle the cause of this. The reason that people are in refugee camps is war. Unless more is done to stop war and conflict, these refugee camps will continue to...

EU Settlement Scheme (21 Jun 2018)

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill: Committee Stage (19 Jun 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point about the difficulty of getting private Members’ Bills through. I will have a private Member’s Bill on 23 November—it is No. 21 of 23, with the House set to sit for only five and a half hours. There is absolutely no chance of the Bill being debated and we will then be in a situation where it has to come back another time. Is one of...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: In the light of the additional funding announced by the Secretary of State yesterday, will he tell me how much additional funding will be provided for palliative care, which I highlighted in my Terminal Illness (Provision of Palliative Care and Support for Carers) Bill?

Bambos Charalambous: Has the Minister spoken to his counterparts at the Department for Education to discuss ways to improve the educational attainment of looked-after and vulnerable children? If not, why not?

Foie Gras Imports (13 Jun 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: The hon. Gentleman refers to the fact that many people are voting with their feet by choosing not to eat foie gras. Does he agree that better education of the wider public would lead to fewer people eating foie gras once they learned of the disgusting practice of how the livers are obtained?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Jun 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: One of my constituents has a brother who has been missing for more than a year. She would like to step in to manage his affairs and protect his property and finances, but she cannot: although the Guardianship (Missing Persons) Act 2017 received Royal Assent on 27 April 2017, it has yet to come into force because the rules of court have not been published. When will the Minister publish the...

Bambos Charalambous: What the timetable is for bringing forward legislative proposals on domestic violence and abuse.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Domestic Violence and Abuse (4 Jun 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: The previous Chancellor announced that domestic violence services would be among the beneficiaries of the tampon tax and would receive an additional dedicated £10 million a year, but this amount remains inadequate for services already hard hit by successive cuts since 2010. Will the Government set out a long-term funding strategy for domestic violence and rape crisis services?

Bills Presented: Terminal Illness (Provision of Palliative Care and Support for Carers) (23 May 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require the provision of comprehensive palliative care to those with terminal illnesses, including adults over the age of 60; to require certain public bodies to co-operate with hospices in the provision of palliative care; to make provision for support for those caring for individuals with a terminal illness; and for connected...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (22 May 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: A Home Affairs Committee report published in summer 2016 found that the suspicious activity reporting system intended for use by the banks to crack down on money laundering was not fit for purpose. The Committee demanded immediate reform, but the Government stated that they would implement the reforms only by 2018. In the light of the Foreign Affairs Committee report on Russia, criminal...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Private Members’ Bills: Money Resolutions (21 May 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: As a relatively new MP, I am still trying to understand how Parliament works and, in particular, the way in which laws are made. One thing that is clear to me is there is very little chance of legislation being made without the support of the Government. As we all know, the Government control the legislative timetable. Apart from the 13 Fridays set aside for private Members’ Bills,...

ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment (15 May 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. She mentioned that about 25% of male prisoners are thought to have ADHD. Does she agree that early intervention and diagnosis of ADHD would not only reduce crime and save money, but improve the life chances of people with ADHD who fall into the criminal justice system?

ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment (15 May 2018)

Bambos Charalambous: I am sure that my hon. Friend is aware of the Government’s mental health Green Paper. Does it contain anything of substance in relation to ADHD? Is there any strategy? If it does not, does she think it should?
