Commerce Minister Boonsong Teriyapirom will not be grilled over the government's rice pledging scheme at this month's censure debate, after he was left off the censure motion submitted by the Democrat Party yesterday. 

The Democrats said they will instead direct their questions regarding the controversial scheme to Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

Alongkorn Ponlaboot, a deputy leader of the Democrats, said yesterday that the party would present questions on the rice pledging scheme in the censure debate, but they would not target the commerce minister.
