Michael Gove has said he has "no idea" what his salary will be in his new role of Chief Whip.
The former Education Secretary is set for a pay cut of almost £36,000 after David Cameron's latest reshuffle.
Speaking to Radio 4's PM, Mr Gove said: "I have no idea how much I'll be paid and it makes no difference to me."
He also brushed off suggestions that he had been demoted.
"Demotion, emotion, promotion, locomotion, I don't know how you would describe this move - though move it is," he joked.
