The organ of Notre-Dame de Luxembourg Cathedral

The organ of Notre-Dame de Luxembourg Cathedral was dismantled last year to be restored and modernised. In his parliamentary question, MP André Bauler asks in particular about the financing of this work.

« L’orgue symphonique HAUPT (1937/38) de la Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Luxembourg a été démonté en été dernier afin d’être restauré entièrement et de se voir équipé de la technologie moderne. En effet, au fil des années le matériel est devenu vétuste, voire défectueux.

Dans ce contexte j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Culture :

1. Dans quelle mesure le Ministère de la Culture intervient-il dans le financement de cette restauration et des travaux de modernisation, voire d’extension ?

2. Un accompagnement de la part de l’administration des Sites et Monuments nationaux est-il requis dans ce cadre ?

3. À concurrence de quelle part les autres partenaires participent-ils au financement de ce projet ?

4. Madame la Ministre peut-elle fournir d’éventuelles précisions sur l’orgue symphonique de la Cathédrale (historique, état actuel, augmentation éventuelle du nombre de registres, etc.) ? »

Answer

The Minister of Culture announces in her reply that the Ministry is participating in the financing of the redevelopment and restoration of the symphonic organ of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Luxembourg up to a maximum amount of EUR 916,666.66, in other words one third of the financial framework of EUR 2,750,000 including taxes, which has been set for the final project. The remaining two thirds are covered by the City of Luxembourg and the Management Fund respectively, says Mrs Sam Tanson.

Are municipalities allowed to withhold letters from the municipality council?

Citizens, clubs or associations often send invitations, concerns or information requests to the Aldermen and the local council of their community. They usually use the official e-mail or postal address of the municipality. DP MPs Guy Arendt and Claude Lamberty have now learned that some letters never reached the members of the municipality council, even though they were considered the recipients of the letter. They have now asked the Minister of the Interior whether this practice is legal and how it can be ensured that a letter arrives where the sender wishes it.
