Chapter 25 - Standing Order No 157 - Assembly amendments to Council amendments
Standing Order No. 157
Assembly amendments to Council amendments
- When a bill is returned to the Assembly with amendments made by the Assembly to the Council’s amendments disagreed to, the message returning the bill will also contain reasons for the Council not agreeing to the amendments proposed by the Assembly.
- The reasons will be drawn up by a committee appointed for that purpose when the Council adopts the report of the committee of the whole disagreeing to the amendments, or may be adopted by motion at that time.
- When further amendments are made by the Council to the Assembly amendments on the Council’s original amendments to a bill which has been first passed by the Assembly, a schedule of the further amendments will be prepared, will be certified by the Clerk and will accompany the bill.
- The Clerk will, at every stage, certify on the first page of the bill the action taken by the Council.
