Point of order?
Point of Order when a member is out of order e.g. Personal explanation
A councillor who has been misunderstood or misrepresented by the councillor speaking may make a personal explanation immediately, briefly and to the point, if the councillor consents. If the councillor declines, the explanation may be offered after the speech.
A councillor may query the procedure of the meeting or the standing orders or constitution e.g absence of a quorum.
The Chair must rule on whether the point is correct (well-taken) or incorrect (not well-taken).
In the crime fiction novel Presumed Dead, meeting procedure is sometimes dramatic.
