What consequences for the pollution of the Drosbach near Leudelange?

After the Drosbach in the industrial zone near Leudelange has been polluted several times in the past, DP MP Gusty Graas asked what the exact causes are and which consequences there will be.

« Selon un article dans la presse écrite, plusieurs nouvelles pollutions du Drosbach ont été détectées récemment, cette fois-ci dans la zone industrielle « Am Bann » à Leudelange. En effet, une station de lavage aurait déversé ses eaux usées dans le Drosbach de manière régulière, sans que personne n’aurait alerté l’Administration de la gestion de l’eau. De plus, un produit chimique en provenance d’une autre entreprise se serait écoulé dans le Drosbach.

Dans ce contexte, j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de l’Environnement, du Climat et du Développement durable :

  • Madame la Ministre peut-elle informer sur la nature et l’origine de ces deux pollutions ?
  • Quelles sont les répercussions sur la faune et flore aquatique du Drosbach de ces deux pollutions ?
  • Quelles conséquences juridiques auront ces deux incidents ?
  • De quelle manière Madame la Ministre entend-elle sensibiliser voire encourager davantage la population à contacter l’AGE en cas d’une pollution d’un cours d’eau ? »

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.
