Democrat Party MPs have threatened to withdraw from the House committee scrutinising the 2.2 trillion baht loans bill and seek a Constitution Court ruling on its legality if by June 3 the government does not provide details of the various projects to be carried out with the loans. 

The threat was made on Thursday by Democrat MPs Korn Chatikavanij, Samart Ratchapolsitte and Atthawich Suwanpakdi, who are members of the opposition minority in the scrutiny committee.

Mr Korn said the minority in the committee had asked for details of various projects to be implemented by the government with the money from the 2.2 trillion baht loans, but had received no response.
