Article 28.c.iii. of the Statute of the Council of
Europe.

      27.1. Any matter within the competence of the Assembly may be placed on the agenda. The Progress Report of the Bureau and the Standing Committee shall be placed on the agenda.
      27.2. A part-session may include a debate on general policy.
      27.3. On the basis of a list of reports already approved by committees but not yet debated and of reports to be approved in time for the part-session, the Bureau shall draw up a draft agenda for each part-session showing at which sittings the items are to be considered. The draft agenda shall be communicated to all members of the Assembly at least two weeks before the opening of a part-session.
      27.4. The draft agenda may be brought up to date by the Bureau and, where possible, shall also be submitted to the Standing Committee. It shall be submitted to the Assembly for approval at the first sitting of a part-session. If the Bureau gives a favourable opinion on a request for a debate under urgent procedure or for a current affairs debate, it shall propose to the Assembly the necessary re-organisation of the draft agenda, principally where necessary by the withdrawal of one or more items of equivalent length.
      27.5. Adoption of a motion to alter the draft agenda shall require a majority of the votes cast. Only affirmative and negative votes

      27.6. On any motion covered by paragraph 5 above, only the following shall be heard: the mover, one speaker against and a spokesperson of the committee concerned.
