Asphalting with loose chippings: are there no alternatives?

DP Member of Parliament André Bauler has heard that a considerable amount of vehicles in the vicinity of Koetschette have been damaged after the renewal of a road. He therefore asked the minister in charge whether there were no alternatives to loose chippings on the occasion of a road renewal by the P&Ch in order to prevent any resulting damage.

« Il me revient que suite aux travaux de route sur le CR308 entre Koetschette et Grevels, qui a été goudronné à l’aide de gravillon (« Rollsplitt »), de nombreux dégâts auraient été constatés par les riverains, tels que des fenêtres de voitures et de tracteurs cassées ainsi que des bosses dans bon nombre de véhicules.

Dans ce cadre j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics :

  • L’Administration des ponts et chaussées a-t-elle reçu des réclamations à cet égard ? Dans l’affirmative, combien de réclamations ont été recensées ?
  • Pour quelles raisons le goudronnage à l’aide de gravillon est-il toujours employé ? N’existe-t-il pas d’alternative à cette technique ?
  • Le gravillon est-il utilisé pour tous les chantiers de ce genre ? Quels sont les paramètres déterminant l’usage de gravillon lors de travaux de route ? »

Do rapid diagnostic tests help against antibiotic shortages?

France is considering only allowing antibiotics to be prescribed if a rapid diagnostic test is carried out beforehand. This would make it possible to determine with certainty whether the infection is bacterial or viral.
This could on the one hand counteract the lack of antibiotics and on the other hand reduce antibiotic resistance.
DP MPs Gilles Baum and Gusty Graas asked the Minister of Health how many antibiotics have been prescribed in Luxembourg in the last five years and whether doctors should be made more aware of prescribing diagnostic tests.


Is therapeutic housing being commercialised?

Therapeutic housing is currently offered by approved outpatient psychiatric services to people suffering from mental health problems.
Rumours are now circulating that the Ministry of Health is planning to entrust the management of therapeutic housing to a commercial company.
DP MPs Gusty Graas and Gilles Baum asked the Minister for Health whether these rumours were true and, if so, why this course of action was being pursued rather than supporting the existing players in approved outpatient psychiatry.


Is there also abuse of “proton pump inhibitors” in Luxembourg?

According to a recent scientific study, the long-term use of so-called “proton pump inhibitors” (IPP), which are used to treat stomach problems, increases the risk of developing dementia. The DP MP Gusty Graas asked the responsible ministers whether they are aware of this study, what conclusions they draw from it and whether figures on the use of IPPs in Luxembourg are known.
