The deadine to submit a 'motion' to council is one week before the day of the next council at midday.  So for example, the deadline for motions for the Council on the 30th of November would be midday on the 23rd of November.  Any motions submitted after the deadline will be debated at the next SU Council, however you may submit a motion as an emergency motion with reasonings for why the motion should be debated sooner even if it was submitted late.  The chair and deputy chair of SU Council will decide if an emergency motion should be debated.
