22.1. In the exercise of its powers under sections 48, 70, 71, 72, 121 and 122, the Executive Committee may delegate its powers to a Committee on Petitions. The Committee on Petitions consists of at least three members, including a chairman chosen from among the members of the Executive Committee. At least two other members are chosen by the Bâtonnier of the Province of Québec or, failing him, by the Executive Committee, from a list of 25 advocates designated by the General Council.
The Executive Committee may, by resolution, determine the operating procedure of the Committee on Petitions and provide that the Bâtonnier of the Province of Québec decide which petitions must be heard by the Executive Committee or by the Committee on Petitions.
