More pharmacies in Luxembourg in the future?

Population growth is increasing demands in a number of different areas. The supply of medicines and related products is one of these. Against this background, our MPs Gilles Baum and André Bauler have asked the Minister of Health, among other questions, if an increase in the pharmacy quota is planned for this decade.

« Il va sans dire que la croissance démographique de ces dernières années fait croître les demandes sur les plans les plus divers. Ainsi le nombre de pharmacies a été révisé à la hausse depuis le début du siècle afin de faire face aux demandes de la population en matière d’approvisionnement en médicaments et produits assimilés. Voilà pourquoi nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Santé :

  • Quel est le nombre de pharmacies qui exercent actuellement au Luxembourg ?
  • Est-il prévu d’augmenter le contingent des pharmacies au cours de cette décennie ?
  • Dans l’affirmative, quel sera le nombre programmé par le ministère de la Santé ?
  • Quels sont les critères retenus pour décider de l’implantation d’une officine en une région déterminée ?
  • Dans quels cantons ou communes du pays le ministère prévoit-il d’établir une ou plusieurs nouvelles pharmacies ? »

DP MPs André Bauler and Gusty Graas asked the ministers concerned whether these insects had already spread in Luxembourg and whether damage had already been detected in crops.

What about the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination?

Some countries restrict the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination for entry into their country. For people who were vaccinated at the beginning of the year, the validity of the vaccination will therefore expire soon. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible ministers whether Luxembourg also plans to introduce such a validity limit and what can be done at EU level.

A “repair bonus” to boost the circular economy?

With a bonus, the Ministry of the Environment in Thuringia wants to encourage people to have their electrical appliances repaired instead of throwing them away. DP MP Max Hahn therefore asked if this would not be a way to strengthen the circular economy also here in Luxembourg.
