Minister warned over expat health fees

MP Khalil Al-Saleh

KUWAIT: During the session, MP Khalil Al-Saleh called on the new health minister Sheikh Basel Al-Sabah to study the decision raising medical charges on expatriates “very carefully”. The warning came after the minister said the decision will be reevaluated after three months of imposing it.

The Assembly also rejected with a comfortable majority a request to establish a committee for combating vice and promoting virtue, as only 17 MPs out of 47 present approved the request. Several MPs opposed to the committee said there was no need for it as it did not do anything in the past.
