Policy & Resources Committee - P.2020/57
To resolve that the business to be dealt with at the Meeting of the States to be held on the 18th March, 2020 shall be taken in the order set out in the attached Appendix.
Under Rule 9(1) of the Rules of Procedure, unless the States resolve otherwise, the business at an ordinary meeting of the States is to be taken in the following order:
(a) communications by the Presiding Officer including in memoriam tributes;
(d) elections and appointments;
(e) motions to debate an appendix report (1st stage);
(f) articles adjourned or deferred from previous Meetings of the States;
(g) all other types of business not otherwise named;
(h) motions to debate an appendix report (2nd stage);
(i) Schedule for future States' business.
In the current circumstances it is proposed to change the order of business so that the Assembly can consider its Rules of Procedure in unprecedented times before the business of the Meeting. Additionally the order set out in the Appendix at paragraph (f), seeks to expedite those items laid by Committees that are considered less contentious and/or is business not subject to Amendment.
