On questions of order no debate is allowable, excepting on an appeal from the decision of the President, or on a reference of a question by him to the meeting, when no member shall speak more than once, unless by consent of the meeting. All decisions on questions of order should be noticed in the minutes.

The President is required to decide all questions of order, unless he prefers to submit the matter to the meeting.*

* Should it be alleged, after a question has been put to vote, and the decision announced, that the question was not understood, the President may withdraw the decision, and put the question again.
