Rainwater systems in public buildings to save drinking water?

The installation of a rainwater system to use rainwater for various purposes is an opportunity to save drinking water, just as drought and heat put groundwater levels under stress. DP MPs Max Hahn and André Bauler asked the minister responsible how many public buildings are already equipped with such a system and what the plans for the future look like.

« D’Installatioun vu Reewaasseranlagen, déi d’Reewaasser an engem Waassertank späicheren an et duerno fir verschidde Besoinen notzen, wéi z.B. op den Toiletten, ass en einfachen, awer wichtege Wee fir Drénkwaasser ze spueren, dëst ëmsou méi an Zäite wou de Grondwaasserspiggel duerch onreegelméisseg Nidderschléi erofgeet.

An deem Kader wollte mir dem Här Minister fir Mobilitéit an ëffentlech Aarbechte folgend Froe stellen :

– Ass virgesinn, fir sou Reewaasseranlagen an ëffentleche Gebaier z’installéieren ?

– Wa jo, kann den Här Minister eis soen, wéi eng Gebaier betraff sinn a wat den Zäitplang ass ?

– A wéi enge Gebaier gëtt et scho sou Anlagen ? »

Strengthening the rights of pregnant self-employed workers

Pregnant employees can apply for dispensation from work before their maternity leave, for example if they are unable to work for health reasons. The self-employed do not have this option, which can have a negative impact on the recalculation of their maternity benefits.
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.

Has the Minister of Health possibly already been contacted by the municipality of Bettendorf and could other municipalities get a new pharmacy?


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.
