Should government ministers be allowed to write articles in newspapers that have a pay wall?
Often on television news it has something like
"Writing in the (newspaper) the (minister) writes ..."
But looking for it on the web there is a pay wall.
I say that if they are in office and have something to say it should be in a free-to-access government web page and if the media want to report it fine.
It is not a matter of whether they are paid a fee even if a fee goes to a charitable cause, but they are there to do the job and if they have something to say it shoukd be said to everybody on equal terms not so that a person needs to pay money to a commercial organisation to read it.
