No guesses as answers please. Mandelson quit as an MP and was rewarded with a lucreative job. He was then promoted by Goe#rmless Gordon to the rank of Baron and took his seat in the Lords. Now the Lords only get expenses and no payment. However Mandy is in the Governmants ranks as a Minister. Ministers are normally paid at a higher rate than a back bencher. The question is: Does Mandy receive a Ministers salary?
