How is the construction industry responding to the global surge in wood prices?

The extended delivery times for wood and fiberboard, as well as the global price increase of the raw material, are causing many headaches for certain businesses and consumers. In this context, our deputy André Bauler asked the Minister of the Economy how the construction industry is dealing with the current situation.

„D‘Präisser fir verschidden Zorte vun Holz sinn zënter enger gewëssener Zäit staark am gaangen ze klammen. Zu Lëtzebuerg ginn et eng sëllege Firmen, déi mat där Matière Première schaffen an vun de globale Präishaussen staark betraff sinn.

Virun deem Hannergrond wollt ech dem Här Wirtschaftsminister folgend Froe stellen:

  • Kann den Här Wirtschaftsminister de Wuesstem vun den Holzpräisser tëscht 2018 an haut retracéieren, andeems tëscht deene verschiddene Etappen an der Wäertschöpfungsketten ënnerscheet gëtt (Präisser, déi Bëschbesëtzer, Seeëreien, Schräinereien a Charpentieren, Holzhändler, etc., bezuelt kréien)? Wat wiere méiglech Ursaache fir dës Entwécklung?
  • Kann den Här Minister aschätzen, wéi sech dës Hausse op d’Präisser an eiser Baubranche auswierkt oder schonn ausgewierkt huet?
  • Ass den Här Minister a Kontakt mam Secteur? Wat ass de Feedback, deen den Här Minister vun de betraffene Betriber zur aktueller Situatioun kritt?“

DP MPs Carole Hartmann and Mandy Minella have asked the relevant ministers whether paid dispensation from work or an equivalent mechanism will be introduced for pregnant self-employed workers.

Introduction of skin cancer screening?

Since 2008, skin cancer screening has been available in Germany for all policyholders aged 35 and over. As a result, many cases of skin cancer are detected earlier.
DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum wanted to know from the Minister for Health how skin cancer figures have developed here in the country since 2013, whether such screening would also be useful in Luxembourg and why only figures for melanoma (black skin cancer) are collected.
