What is the origin of the Sauer pollution near Martelange?

After petrol has been spilled into the Sauer near Martelange, DP MP Gusty Graas wanted to know what the origin of the pollution is and what impact it has on the Sauer's biosphere.

« Tel que communiqué par les services de Madame la Ministre, la Sûre a été polluée le 24 janvier 2023 par un déversement d’hydrocarbures sur le territoire belge près de Rombach-Martelange.

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

  • Les services de Madame la Ministre sont-ils en contact avec les autorités belges afin d’identifier l’origine de la pollution ?
  • Madame la Ministre peut-elle informer que s’est-il passé exactement ? Quand est-ce que l’incident a eu lieu ?
  • Quel en est l’impact sur le cours d’eau en question, sa faune et sa flore ?
  • Quelles conséquences juridiques cet incident aura-t-il ? »

How has the situation of “Dubliners” in Luxembourg developed over the past few years?

Since the end of October, male “Dubliners” who are traveling as individuals can no longer be accepted in the refugee accommodation. This is because the options are scarce and the existing places are overcrowded. Priority should be given to children, women and vulnerable people. But how have the numbers developed over the past few years and how did we get into this situation? Our MPs Corinne Cahen and Gusty Graas inquired with the relevant ministry.


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.
