Cabinet ministers are well prepared to explain to the parliament the need for the government to raise huge loans for investment in infrastructure development megaprojects, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said on Tuesday. 

Ms Yingluck was responding to a move by some senators, who want the Constitution Court to rule on the legality of the two-trillion-baht infrastructure borrowing bill, due to be tabled in the House of Representatives on Thursday.

The prime minister said the loan bill is legal. All MPs could express their views during the debate on the legislation, scheduled for March 28 and 29.
