previous question in order


Recommended Posts

Just now, Terence said:

Is the motion to end debate (previous question) in order even if everyone in the meeting has not taken the floor?

Yes.  For example, the very first member assigned the floor to debate (usually the maker of the debatable motion) can conclude his remarks by moving for the previous question.  But it's just a motion and it requires a 2/3 vote to adopt, so it could easily be voted down if enough members feel there needs to be more debate.
