Amendments of which no notice has been given
28.100Amendments of which notice does not appear on the paper (‘manuscript amendments’, see para 28.98 ) may be moved only if the Chair allows that course to be adopted.1 When it is desired to propose an amendment without notice, the Chair should be informed beforehand of its terms and of the exact place in the clause where it would occur, in order that, if deemed fit for selection, the Chair may call on the proposer to move it when that place is reached. In any case where the Chair has agreed to the selection of a manuscript amendment, it is made available as soon as practicable.
