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?

To get an idea of what PAP ministers make, follow this link to a report by the Hong Kong Legislative Council’s Research Department:
