How Much Do PAP Ministers Earn?

The Optical

Other than sporadic reports that speculate how much our PAP ministers make each month in salary, there has not been much of official reports about it.

A “cloak of secrecy” surrounds this. Even if the ministers say they’ll take a pay-cut soon given the economic malaise Singapore is facing partly due to SARS, the question is not how much of a pay-cut they will take but what is their salary in the first place?
