PM vetoes plan for new vetting body

- +

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has shot down the Public Health Ministry's proposal to set up a new state body to screen public health policies before implementation. 

Public Health Minister Pradit Sinthawanarong confirmed his proposal was rejected by the prime minister on Friday. Ms Yingluck argued it would duplicate the job of cabinet and other independent health agencies.

Under Dr Pradit's proposal, the new state body _ to be called the National Health Authority (NHA) _ would be chaired by the prime minister and have the defence, interior, finance, social development and human security, labour and education ministers as members.
