SINGAPORE: Ministerial salary framework and levels will not be changed, said Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean in Parliament during the Committee of Supply (COS) debates on Thursday (Mar 1).

Mr Teo's announcement came after several Members of Parliament such as Mr Vikram Nair and Mr Liang Eng Hwa asked whether a salary review has been conducted, since the five-year timeframe to do so had passed.
