Lay on the Table Limitations


Recommended Posts

I recently came across the following test question:


9.   The motion to Lay on the Table is a motion that can be

a. debated and amended.

b. applied to the motion to Limit Debate.

c. made when the Previous Question has been made.

d. applied to a pending amendment.


The correct answer is C which I know is indeed correct. I know RONR says that lay on the table cannot be exclusively applied to another subsidiary motion, it must lay all pending motions and the main motion on the table. Therefore, is that why D and B are incorrect because I know they can be laid on the table along with a pending main motion?


Are number D and B implying that the motion to lay on the table can exclusively lay a pending amendment / motion to limit debate on the table which would then be incorrect?
