147 Quorum

(1) The quorum in committee of the whole shall be the same as for the Senate.

(2) If notice is taken of the absence of a quorum in committee, the chairman shall count the committee, and if after the bells have been rung for 4 minutes a quorum is not formed, or if it appears on a division (by which division no decision shall be taken to have been arrived at) that a quorum is not present, the chairman shall leave the chair and report to the Senate.

(3) If the proceedings of a committee are interrupted by lack of a quorum and consequent adjournment of the Senate, the resumption of the committee shall be an order of the day for the next day of sitting, and when the order is called on the proceedings shall be resumed at the point where they were interrupted.
