The deputies of the Bundestag complained about the cold in the offices due to energy savings

The deputies of the Bundestag complained about the severe cold in the offices of the parliament building, because of which politicians have to dress warmly. About it reported columnist Tim Neumann in an article for Spiegel.

“I sat in the office in a down jacket and constantly went back and forth. However, after a short time I started to have a runny nose. <...> This is a farce! The administration clearly has no control over this.” said Renate Künast, MP from the Green Party.

The decrease in temperature in the parliament building is due to a shortage of gas. No more than 19 degrees are maintained in offices and meeting rooms, and corridors and foyers are no longer heated.

Other parliamentarians expressed similar dissatisfaction. The author of the article pointed out that the representative of the “Greens” Robert Habeck introduced a law in the summer to change the rules for energy saving, according to which the same rules apply to the premises of the German parliament as to other non-residential public buildings.
