Accordingly, it would not be possible to pay salaries to those Ministers who are currently unpaid even if salaries were reduced. Indeed, Ministerial salaries have reduced by 5% this Parliament, saving approximately £4million and demonstrating leadership in a time of pay restraint.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Information concerning levels of entitled ministerial salary can be found in the Ministerial and other Salaries Act 1975 (amendment) Order 2011:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukdsi/2011/9780111509258/body" target="_blank"><strong>http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukdsi/2011/9780111509258/body</strong></a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Written Answer provided on 22 January was pertinent to the original question. The coalition Government continues to work within the limits set by the legislation (the <em>Ministerial and other Salaries Act 1975</em>) with regards to the number of salaried Ministers and there are currently no plans to change this. The total cost to public funds of all Government ministerial salaries based on legislation is approximately £4.5m per year; the cost of paying unpaid ministers a salary would be approximately £744,000 per year.</p> more like this
