What could be done with our Roman roads?

There are many remains of the Roman period in Luxembourg, including villas, tombs and roads. Already in ancient times, Luxembourg was located at the crossroads of several Gallo-Roman roads. It is in the context of these roadways that our deputy André Bauler put some questions to the Minister of Culture and the Minister of Tourism.

« Il va sans dire que notre pays est parsemé de vestiges romains dont notamment des villas, des tombes ou encore des voies. En effet, déjà à l’époque antique, le Luxembourg était situé au carrefour de plusieurs voies gallo-romaines, dont par exemple celle reliant Cologne à Reims, laquelle étant encore bien localisable en certains endroits (e.g. près de Hautbellain).

Dans ce contexte j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de la Culture et à Monsieur le Ministre du Tourisme :

  1. Madame la Ministre peut-elle fournir des détails sur les voies romaines qui traversent notre pays et qui sont encore conservées en partie ? Quelles informations nous rapportent les fouilles archéologiques en la matière ?
  2. Existe-t-il des cartes pédagogiques destinées à informer le public intéressé, en particulier les enseignants et amateurs de l’histoire, lesquels pourraient visiter ces voies et chemins avec des élèves ou toute autre personne intéressée ?
  3. Est-il prévu, le cas échéant, de collaborer avec le Ministère du Tourisme afin d’intégrer ces voies romaines dans des itinéraires touristiques ?

Has the presence of the stink bug already been confirmed in Luxembourg?

The stink bug is an invasive insect native to Asia that causes many headaches for winegrowers, fruit and vegetable producers. These bugs can indeed cause very serious damage in vines, orchards or vegetable gardens. DP MPs André Bauler and Gusty Graas asked the ministers concerned whether these insects had already spread in Luxembourg and whether damage had already been detected in crops.


What about the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination?

Some countries restrict the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination for entry into their country. For people who were vaccinated at the beginning of the year, the validity of the vaccination will therefore expire soon. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible ministers whether Luxembourg also plans to introduce such a validity limit and what can be done at EU level.


A “repair bonus” to boost the circular economy?

With a bonus, the Ministry of the Environment in Thuringia wants to encourage people to have their electrical appliances repaired instead of throwing them away. DP MP Max Hahn therefore asked if this would not be a way to strengthen the circular economy also here in Luxembourg.
