The Council of State proposed seven laws that can be repealed, namely:
1940 Royal Thai Police Regulation and Operation of Gold Mining
Inconsistent with the protection of rights and freedoms of persons prescribed in the Constitution, which specifies methods for land expropriation and does not allow the Agriculture and Cooperatives Ministry power over gold mining as in the past.
1941 Electricity Business Promotion Act
The Energy Regulatory Commission has been established to oversee the electricity industry.
1945 Act on procedures against persons disseminating news that spoils goodwill between Thailand and other allies
This is covered by the 2019 National Intelligence Act.
1948 Act on unreasonable government trade
This law has never been practised. The current Public Administration Act controls and examines government procurement projects.
2005 CD Product Act
Only one case has been tried under this law since its introduction. Now there is a legal mechanism controlling the movement and use of CD manufacturing machinery as well as related copyright law.
1936 Act on Training of Certain Children and 1958 Act on Training of Certain Children (No 2)
Other codes such as the Child Protection Law and laws related to youth and family can be used instead.
