The junta-installed state budget monitoring and scrutinising committee has found irregularities in the disbursement of meeting allowances to parliament committees and plans to recall the money.
Lt Gen Anantaporn Kanchanarat, who chairs the committee, made the comment yesterday after the panel had concluded its audit of the parliament's budget spending.
He said the panel discovered that more than 3,000 parliament committees had been set up. Some committee members received meeting allowances more than once in a day while some attended a meeting for only 5-10 minutes but received allowances for three hours' attendance, worth 9,000 baht.
