775. Occasions when a second speech is permissible.

A member of the House of Commons is not allowed to speak upon the same question more than once in the same debate1, unless he has moved a substantive motion, when he is entitled to a right of reply2. A member who has already taken part in a debate may, by leave of the House, speak a second time on the same question if he wishes to explain some material point in his first speech which has been misunderstood, or desires to make a personal explanation.
