Dilatory motions and tactics
Dilatory tactics or motions, in parliamentary procedure, are those tactics used to delay or obstruct business, annoy the deliberative assembly, or, in legislative procedure, to delay consideration of a subject. Some types of motions are suitable only for specific circumstances, and their use is otherwise absurd and dilatory. For instance, a motion to refer (commit) a resolution to a committee is dilatory if its object would be defeated by the delay in taking action. At a special meeting called to consider a matter, a motion to lay that matter on the table is also dilatory.
