Overview

Excerpt from The Chairman's Handbook, Suggestions and Rules for the Conduct of Chairmen of Public and Other Meetings Based Upon the Procedure and the Practice of Parliament: With an Introductory Letter Addressed to the Right Hon. Viscount Hampden, G. C. B., When the Speaker of the House of Commons

The permission to preface an attempt to pcpu larisa the business method of that Assembly over which you with so much distinction preside, with a letter addressed to you, is an honour that claims my most grateful recognition. And this act of kindness on your part is the more welcome, as my special object has been the assistance of chairmen, who in the discharge of their duty seek to act, in imitation of the Speaker of the House of Commons.

Following the line thus indicated, I have endeavoured to show how, according to parliamentary usage, a. Chairman is chosen, discussion guided, and motions put to the vote. And rules of procedure are added, based on Sir T. Erskine May's Treatise on Parlia mentary Practice an acknowledgment, indeed, which applies to the whole of this publication.

As the sound usage under which the House of Commons regulates deliberation is the result of English common-sense acting with precision and uniformity for at least three centuries, it might be presumed that an explanation of the merits of a usage so in harmony with our national cast of thought would be almost unnecessary.
