Requests and inquiries


Requests and inquiries

Requests and inquiries, in parliamentary procedure, are non-debatable, non-amendable motions used by members of a deliberative assembly to obtain information or to do or have something done that requires permission of the assembly.

Explanation and Use

These requests are in order when another has the floor if they require immediate attention. The requests and inquiries include parliamentary inquiry, point of information, request for permission to withdraw or modify a motion, request to read papers, and request for any other privilege. [cite parl|title=RONR|edition=10th|pages=280-281] The request to be excused from a duty does not fall in this category of motions because it is debatable and amendable.
