Discussion from the Floor

Guest Dean Myrick

Recommended Posts

If by "the floor" you're referring to persons who aren't members of the body that is meeting then the answer is that non-members have no rights. They don't even have a right to attend the meeting. But the body that is meeting could permit non-members to attend and speak.


But parliamentarily (and roughly) speaking, "the floor" refers to the assembly (the members present) so, in that sense, all discussion and comments (we prefer the term "debate") comes from "the floor".
