Suppression of a railway tunnel in Rumelange: what is the environmental impact?

In Rumelange, the CFL wants to destroy a historic railway tunnel, i.e. remove the ground above the tunnel, to modernize the track. DP MPs Gusty Graas and Max Hahn asked what environmental impact these works had.

« Selon un article de presse récent, les CFL prévoiraient dans le cadre des travaux de suppression des passages à niveau PN106 et PN106a à Rumelange de supprimer également le tunnel sur la ligne Rumelange – Langengrund.

Vu que beaucoup d’arbres devraient être enlevés, la suppression de ce tunnel aura un impact considérable sur l’environnement.  

Dans ce contexte, nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics :

  • Quelles sont les raisons pour supprimer le tunnel susmentionné ? Monsieur le Ministre peut-il fournir des précisions quant aux travaux prévus dans ce cadre ?
  • Quel serait l’impact environnemental de ces travaux ? Quelles mesures compensatoires devraient être effectuées ? »

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.
