Wednesday 12 April 2000

(The vote was interrupted after the vote on amendments 38 and 49 as it was time for the formal sitting.)

(The sitting was suspended at 11.30.)

(Between 12.05 and 12.30, Parliament held a formal sitting for the visit of Mr Klestil, President of the
Republic of Austria.)

(The sitting resumed at 12.35.)

The following spoke:
' Roth-Behrendt, who questioned the need to interrupt such an important vote for the formal sitting
and who felt it would have been preferable to finish the vote first; she asked for the matter to be
referred to the Bureau (the President assured her that it would be);
' Bowe, rapporteur, who stated that amendment 51, the first roll-call vote following the resumption of
the sitting, had not been adopted, as it had not attained the qualified majority required; he felt that the
interruption of the vote had led to a number of Members leaving the Chamber and felt that, as a
result, the outcome of the vote might be void (the President replied that he had been obliged to
interrupt the vote out of respect for protocol and expressed the view that the Bureau would have to
address the points raised);
' Lienemann, who stated that the bell had not sounded to announce the resumption of voting time (the
President replied that he had announced immediately prior to the interruption that voting time would
resume straight after the formal sitting and, moreover, this was indicated on the agenda);
' Lipietz, who proposed a two-minute pause in the sitting to recall Members who had left the Chamber
(the President expressed his dissatisfaction at what had happended but decided to press on with the
vote).
