i) The rights of, or timetable for,

submission of motions and

amendments.

ii) Consultative sessions.

iii) Procedural motions for next

business or suspension of

standing orders.

c) No motion to suspend standing orders

to introduce a motion or amendment

on to the agenda can be taken unless

the motion or amendment has

been submitted to the Committee

in accordance with the published

timetable and, where a right of appeal

against non-selection exists, the right

has been exercised.

d) The chair shall read the statement

of purpose and, if the suspension is

allowable in the terms of this standing

order, ask the conference whether

it wishes to debate the request for

suspension. If the conference decides

not to debate the request, it falls. If

the conference decides, by a majority

of those present and voting, to hear

the request the mover may speak and

a representative of the Committee

may reply. The chair shall have the

discretion to allow other speakers. All

speeches on the motion to suspend

standing orders will be limited to two

minutes.

e) A motion to suspend standing orders

shall only be carried if supported by

at least two-thirds of the conference

members voting. If the procedural

motion is carried all standing orders

shall remain in force except only for

the purposes set out in the motion.

11.7 No procedural motions during

votes

No procedural motion can be moved

during a vote.

12 Reports

12.1 Which reports are tabled

The business session or sessions of the

conference must include consideration

of reports from the bodies listed in

Standing Order 1.1(b).

12.2 Submission and selection of

questions

A voting member may submit questions

to any report tabled for consideration, by

the deadlines set under Standing Orders

1.5 (d) and (e). The Committee shall

publish in advance of the report session

all the questions submitted under

Standing Order 1.5 (d) which are in order,

compositing similar questions where

appropriate.

12.3 Whether questions are in order

or not

A question shall be ruled out of order if

it asks the body submitting the report

about issues which are outside its duties

and responsibilities. If the question could

be answered by another body reporting

to the same conference, the Committee

may transfer the question to that body.

12.4 How questions and

supplementary questions are put and

answered

After the report is moved, the mover,

or their nominee, shall answer the

questions in turn. After each question

has been answered, the voting member

who submitted the question will be given

the opportunity to put a supplementary

question, speaking for a maximum of

two minutes, and the mover, or their

nominee, will be given an opportunity to

respond. The chair shall determine the

time given to the mover in moving the

report and replying to questions. The

chair shall also determine how many

of the published questions, and how

many of the questions submitted under

Standing Order 1.5 (e), can be taken.

After the conference the Committee

shall publish the answers to all questions

submitted under Standing Orders 1.5
