Bankruptcy and winding-up petition reform
The government consultation Reform of the Process to Apply for Bankruptcy and Compulsory Winding Up, which proposes adjudication by Insolvency Service staff rather than a court hearing of most petitions for bankruptcy and companies winding-up, has begun to trigger debate.
I confess to favouring the view of the learned judge. As I write, the consultation has 12 days left to run, closing on 31 January 2012. The government (through the Insolvency Service's Policy Unit) welcomes the views of all interested parties.
