InfoQuest, (April 22, 2020) -- Mr. Kamnoon Sidhisamarn, a spokesman for the Extraordinary Committee of Senate Affairs, revealed that at a meeting chaired by Mr. Pornphet Wichitchonchai, chairman of the Senate, the government's policy to return the budget for relief to those affected by the Covid-19 was discussed. The Secretariat of the Senate announced that it would refund 93.3 million baht, or 25 percent of the remaining 360 million baht in the budget, of which 67.5 million baht came from the budget for the committee's participation in bilateral meetings and overseas visits, 24.8 million baht from that for international meetings and reception of foreign guests, and 1 million baht from that for official assignments.

The meeting approved a donation worth 10 million baht to foundations to fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and other infectious diseases and Chaipattana Foundation. In addition, a task force will be set up to determine how to distribute other donations beyond that amount, that is, to make clear whether the donations should be given to certain department or to a special program launched by the Senate to help people affected by the outbreak.
