47. The case shall be entered on the roll and the date of the hearing fixed in accordance with the rules of practice and procedure of the division; the parties shall be notified thereof in accordance with such rules.
After the case is entered on the roll, a member of the division, if he believes it useful or if he is so requested, may invite the parties with their attorneys to discuss with him appropriate means to reconcile their points of view or, if need be, the advisability of amending the pleadings, of defining the questions really in dispute and of admitting a fact or document.
The agreements and decisions made at such conference shall be recorded in minutes signed by the parties, their attorneys and one of the members of the division; as far as they go, they shall govern the hearing before the division, unless the member hearing the case permits a derogation therefrom to prevent an injustice.
