To what extent does the state control the quality and prices of face masks?

After the state had distributed free masks to each inhabitant, the pharmacies and shops started selling different types of face masks. However, besides their selling price, the quality of these goods was also very variable. In this context, our deputy André Bauler asked the Minister of the Economy whether these masks are subject to quality controls and whether their selling prices are regularly checked by the state.

Um Ufank vun der Pandemie goufen et kaum Masken ze kafen. Lues a lues hunn Apdikten a Geschäfter der dunn offréiert, zousätzlech zur Offer vun der ëffentlecher Hand. Déi eng hu Masken am Pak verkaaft, déi aner eenzel. Datt et fir de Konsument problematesch war fir d‘Präisser an d‘Qualitéit ze vergläichen läit op der Hand.

An deem Kader wollt ech dem Här Wirtschaftsminister an der Madamm Konsumenteschutzministesch folgend Froe stellen:

  • Wat fir Typpe vu Masken sinn hei zu Lëtzebuerg um fräie Maart zanter Juni 2020 verkaaft ginn?
  • Goufen dës Masken alleguer enger Kontroll ënnerworf, iert se an den Handel konnte kommen?
  • Wéi vill Masken goufen generell am Kader vu staatleche Kontrolle fonnt, déi net konform mat de nationalen, respektiv den europäesche Standarden fir Sécherheet, Gesondheet an Ëmweltschutz waren? Wat gouf an deem Fall mat dëse Masken gemaach?
  • Huet den Här Minister an huet d’Madamm Ministesch Informatiounen iwwer d’Präisser, déi an Apdikten a soss am Commerce fir dës Maske gefrot goufen?
  • Si Stéchprouwe gemaach ginn fir de Präis vun Eenzelmasken ze kontrolléieren an ze suivéieren?
  • Huet den Här Minister Informatiounen iwwer d’Gewënnmargen an deem Kontext? Wa jo, gouf et Fäll wou noweislech iwwerdriwwe Präisser gefrot goufen?“

Following the military coup in February this year, the army continues to advance with increasing force against the protesters in Myanmar.

Our MP Gusty Graas inquired at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
