"...It is establishing a dangerous precedent to allow Assemblies
to put a time limit on non-attendance of their members at
meetings of the S.A., beyond which that person is automatically
dropped from the Assembly and a vacancy declared ...
there should be no time limit fixed by Assemblies beyond which
a person is dropped. Every case of prolonged absence from the
sessions of the Assembly should be considered separately by that
Assembly, and if the person is seen to not want to attend
meetings or to be held away from them indefinitely because of
illness or travel, then a vacancy could legitimately be declared
and a new member be elected."
