If the desire is for the body to act, it needs to be stated as a motion.  If there is no desire for the body to act, then either it's a brief oral report (as officer or committee) or it shouldn't be said during a meeting.  For the most part - if it's a meeting, it needs to be a motion.

A motion is a proposal to do something. Does the assembly want to do something?

Or to be a tad more precise;  Does some individual want the assembly to do something?  If so, then the individual should put the "do something" request into the form of a motion.

Perhaps the assembly is having open and general discussions with no motion pending, in the hopes that once the issue has been discussed at great length, some "motion" or "action" will come of it. If so, they'd probably find meetings to be more focused and efficient to do it the proper way and have a motion pending first, and then discuss it.
