Doud Fësch Tote Fische

What effects does the flood have on fish stocks?

Due to the recent floods, many fish have not been able to swim back into their stream or river. DP MP Gusty Graas asked the concerned minister whether she was already aware of the effects of the recent floods on the national fish stocks and whether the “plan de repeuplement” needed to be adjusted now.

« Les récentes inondations ont eu des conséquences néfastes pour la faune aquatique car de nombreuses rivières ont été fortement polluées. En dépit de l’engagement courageux de bénévoles, dont entre autres des membres de la Fédération des Pêcheurs sportifs, des centaines de milliers de poissons n’ont pas pu rejoindre les lits de divers fleuves et rivières après que l’eau s’est retirée.

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

  • Est-ce qu’on peut d’ores et déjà évaluer l’impact des récentes inondations sur le cheptel piscicole ?
  • Quels fleuves et rivières ont été touchés le plus par cette catastrophe écologique ?
  • Est-ce qu’il est prévu d’adapter le cas échéant le plan de repeuplement afin de garantir dans les meilleurs délais un renforcement du cheptel piscicole dans les cours d’eau concernés ? »

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.
