Can you make a motion when the chair is seeking a comment for debate?

Just what the title asks.

There are a number of secondary motions which may be made by a member who has been assigned the floor for debate when another motion is pending.  Can you add a few facts to clarify the situation?

Well there are some motions you can make and others you can't.  E.g., you can move to amend, postpone, or refer the pending motion, or move the Previous Question (cut off debate on the pending motion), depending on the current parliamentary situation.  And you can make a number of incidental motions, but you can't, say, introduce a new main motion.

So the answer is It depends.  Can you provide an example of what you have in mind, that prompted the question?
