A DEPUTY minister told MPs they have the right to look through applications for government loans. 

Deputy Entrepreneurial and Cooperatives Minister Datuk Kamsiyah Yakob said officers should first refer applications for the entrepreneurial group economy fund to the MPs before the loans are approved. 

“If the officers do not refer the application to the MP concerned, the MP can lodge a complaint.” 

On a related issue, she told Raime Unggi (BN - Tenom), that only 52% of 111,237 borrowers had repaid their loans since the fund was set up in 1999. 

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, in a written reply to Teresa Kok (DAP-Seputih), said more than RM15mil had been spent to renovate the Prime Minister's official residence at Precinct 8 in Putrajaya.
