A protocol of speeches in Parliament are recorded mostly by stenographers during the session. At the end of the session, these are presented to the President of Parliament , who may check them or accept objections to the minutes. In the German Bundestag , the speakers also have two hours to correct the minutes , although the meaning of the speech or parts of it may not be changed by the corrections. As soon as the President of Parliament has signed the minutes, they are printed and published depending on the Parliament.
In some parliaments it is customary to mark the minutes not only with the date, but also with the number of the respective legislative period and a consecutive number, as in the German Bundestag.
