Why do fewer municipalities take part in the European Mobility Week from year to year?

The European Mobility Week aims to raise awareness for more sustainable forms of mobility than cars. As fewer and fewer municipalities are taking part in this initiative from year to year, DP MP Gusty Graas has asked the minister responsible what this entails and how to reverse the trend.

« Chaque année, du 16 au 22 septembre, se déroule la semaine européenne de la mobilité dans un bon nombre de pays en Europe et au-delà, afin de sensibiliser les citoyens à des modes de transport plus durables, en organisant par exemple une journée sans voiture.

Or, force est de constater qu’en 2021 seulement 23 des 102 communes du Luxembourg participeront à cette initiative, tandis qu’en 2008 encore 100 communes s’y étaient inscrites.

Dans ce contexte j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics :

  • Quelles sont les raisons pour ce déclin de la participation des communes ?
  • De quelle manière Monsieur le Ministre entend-il encourager une participation plus importante des communes les prochaines années ? »

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.
