Have no subsidies for a heat pump been paid out yet?

DP MPs Max Hahn and Claude Lamberty have heard that no subsidy for a heat pump has been paid out by the ministry yet, because there is almost no heat pump on the market that meets the set noise limit values. They therefore wanted to know from the relevant minister whether this is true and according to which criteria the limit values were defined.

Et ass eis zu Ouere komm, dass den Ëmweltministère bis ewell nach keng Subventioun am Kader vum Klimabonus-Programm fir d’Installatioun vun enger Loft-Wäermepompel accordéiert an ausbezuelt huet. De Grond heifir wier, dass et aktuell um Marché bal keng Wäermepompel gëtt, déi déi jeeweileg Kaméidigrenzwäerter (≤ 5kW: 48 dB(A); 5-12 kW: 51 dB(A); >12 kW: 55 dB(A)) anhält.

An deem Kader wollte mir der Madamm Ministesch fir Ëmwelt, Klima an nohalteg Entwécklung folgend Froe stellen:

  • Kann d’Madamm Ministesch dës Informatioune bestätegen?
  • Falls net, wéi vill Demande sinn an de leschten dräi Joer pro Joer erakomm? Wéi vill goufen der accordéiert? Wéi vill goufen der ausbezuelt?
  • No wéi enge Krittäre sinn dës Grenzwäerter festgeluecht ginn?“

Do rapid diagnostic tests help against antibiotic shortages?

France is considering only allowing antibiotics to be prescribed if a rapid diagnostic test is carried out beforehand. This would make it possible to determine with certainty whether the infection is bacterial or viral.
This could on the one hand counteract the lack of antibiotics and on the other hand reduce antibiotic resistance.
DP MPs Gilles Baum and Gusty Graas asked the Minister of Health how many antibiotics have been prescribed in Luxembourg in the last five years and whether doctors should be made more aware of prescribing diagnostic tests.


Is therapeutic housing being commercialised?

Therapeutic housing is currently offered by approved outpatient psychiatric services to people suffering from mental health problems.
Rumours are now circulating that the Ministry of Health is planning to entrust the management of therapeutic housing to a commercial company.
DP MPs Gusty Graas and Gilles Baum asked the Minister for Health whether these rumours were true and, if so, why this course of action was being pursued rather than supporting the existing players in approved outpatient psychiatry.


Is there also abuse of “proton pump inhibitors” in Luxembourg?

According to a recent scientific study, the long-term use of so-called “proton pump inhibitors” (IPP), which are used to treat stomach problems, increases the risk of developing dementia. The DP MP Gusty Graas asked the responsible ministers whether they are aware of this study, what conclusions they draw from it and whether figures on the use of IPPs in Luxembourg are known.
