Getting asked about the collective cabinet responsibility Costa conundrum .... so.... let me explain
Collective responsibility, the principle:

-All ministers bound by it, unless set aside
-Ministers should be able to express their views frankly prior to decision
- Such discussions should be private and .... not leaked during the course of the meeting
- Once decision made, everyone sticks with it - always happens
- You can't vote against the govt and not resign, unless free vote
- You're not supposed to put amendments down against your own govts' position
It's totally ok to accidentally say that the govt will be supporting an amendment that is contrary to the govt's position that a PPS tabled... that's just because it's hard to keep track of them all. OK?
I don't know why ewe're even talking about it. Everything is perfectly clear.
