divide a motion

Recommended Posts

Can we divide a motion at any time?

"Although it is preferable to divide a question when it is first introduced, a motion to divide can be made at any time that the main motion, an amendment which it is proposed to divide, or the motion to Postpone Indefinitely is immediately pending -- even after the Previous Question has been ordered." - RONR(10th ed.), p. 262, l. 9-14.


"If it has been decided to consider divisible material seriatim, even if the material was divisible on the demand of a single member, it is too late to move or demand a division of the question." - RONR(10th ed.), p. 267, l. 21-24.
