Two ways to reduce pay of UK Cabinet Ministers ...

UK Prime Minister David Cameron and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg have (according to the rather informative website) made a clear commitment to cutting the cost of government, including urgent action to begin reducing the deficit this year.

As part of this process of cutting costs, yesterday it was announced that new Ministers will be paid five per cent less than Ministers received in the previous administration.

That involves a pay cut of £7,500 for the PM, leading to a new salary of £142,500; it's said that over the lifetime of the Parliament, the Ministerial salary cut and subsequent pay freeze will save approximately £3 million.

There are other ways of keeping salary costs down though ....... A new politics: cutting Ministerial pay
