MP's receive a annual salary, paid monthly. Ministers receive a annual salary, as a MP and a Minister, also paid monthly. Why so? An Minister is still an MP, whatever task taken on. One salary should only be paid. Would an MP do the "job" on this countries "minimum wage"? As a MP receives very generous pay, why should they receive "expenses" too. A lot of good citizens would welcome the opportunity to do the "job" for less pay. Maybe a better job is made of it too!
MP's and Ministers should receive a reasonable salary for carrying out the elected duties. But, MP's and Ministers pay should be cut drastically and be brought down to normal pay.
