This chapter examines the position of ministers who may be selected to deputise for the prime minister, but who may do so on an informal basis, not being formally titled as deputy, those who may be given the title of deputy prime minister, but who have to be given a ministerial post in order to receive a salary, and those who may be given the post of first secretary of state. It addresses the reasons why deputy prime minister is a title and not a salaried ministerial office and the use made by the prime minister of either or both the title of deputy prime minister and post of first secretary of state.
