Drone rescue of fawns from combine harvesters

The government announced a pilot project last summer to support the drone rescue of fawns from combine harvesters. DP MPs Max Hahn and Gusty Graas wanted more information on this pilot project.

« An hirer Äntwert op eis parlamentaresch Fro n°2377 vum 11. Juni 2020 hunn d’Madamm an den Här Minister folgendes geschriwwen :

« D’Réikitzrettung mat enger thermescher Kamera an enger Dron aus der Loft ass déi sécherst Method fir Réikitz virun der Méihmaschinn ze retten. Déi nei Technologien kënnen hei sécherlech ee Beitrag fir méi Sécherheet leeschten. Oft ugewannte Methoden, wéi zum Beispill verdreiwe mat Duftstoffer oder Mënscheketten si méi zäitopwänneg an net sou erfollegräich. Et gëtt driwwer nogeduecht ee Pilotprojet ze starten. »

An deem Kader wollte mir der Madamm Ministesch fir Ëmwelt, Klima an nohalteg Entwécklung an dem Här Minister fir Landwirtschaft, Wäibau a ländlech Entwécklung folgend Froe stellen:

– Wäert de genannte Pilotprojet dëse Fréijoer lancéiert ginn ?

– Wann net, wat wieren d’Grënn dofir ? Wéini soll de Projet gestart ginn ?

– Kënnen d’Madamm an den Här Minister weider Detailer zum Projet ginn ? »


The pilot project will not yet be launched this spring. A specification for this project is however being prepared with “Natur an Ëmwelt asbl.”. The project aims to compare different techniques and methods. These include simple and inexpensive measures such as mowing from the inside out, to the use of drones or detectors on the agricultural machinery. Furthermore, the project should not be limited to fawns, but also other animals as e.g. rabbits or the ground breeders should benefit from it. We also look at our neighboring countries’ experiences in this context. Eventually, a pilot project could be launched in spring 2022.

New pharmacies for the North?

An investigation by the Competition Council into the pharmaceutical sector shows that Luxembourg has a low number of pharmacies compared to the OECD. The Council is therefore proposing the creation of new pharmacies to fill the geographical gaps. DP MP André Bauler asked the Minister of Health whether there are already considerations to create new pharmacies in the north of the country and which criteria are decisive for the creation of new pharmacies.

Why are prisoners of the Uerschterhaff not allowed to work?

In contrast to the sentenced prisoners in Schrassig, prisoners of the Uerschterhaff are not allowed to work. This is despite the fact that pre-trial detention can last anywhere from a few days to a few years. Why is there a difference in treatment, and will anything change in this regard? Our MP Pim Knaff asked the responsible ministry for more information.


Is there a shortage of the drug Ozempic?

The drug Ozempic is used to treat type 2 diabetes. However, it also helps people lose weight and is increasingly being bought for this purpose as well. Since there is already talk of a shortage of this diabetes drug in many countries, DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum asked the responsible ministers what the drug is mainly used for in this country, whether there could also be a shortage here, and whether doctors and pharmacists should be advised to dispense Ozempic only for type 2 diabetes.
