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 ? »

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.
