The cabinet is yet to discuss proposals to reduce the pledging price of rice, because it is waiting for the National Rice Policy Committee to provide further details on the existing scheme, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said. 

The premier said on Tuesday that the cabinet had acknowledged proposals from the rice policy panel, but had directed it to come up with additional information on the rice scheme, and report back, before any decision on the future of the scheme is made.

Ms Yingluck said that a central committee would be set up to survey the amount of rice remaining in storage alongside a team from the Royal Thai Police.
