HC Deb 24 March 1914 vol 60 c173
13. Mr. TOUCHE

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that the Indian Bankruptcy Acts contain in their enumeration of acts of insolvency nothing corresponding with a bankruptcy notice as provided by Chapter 52, Section 4 (g), of the English Bankruptcy Act, 1883, and that, in consequence, debtors having no goods to be distrained on are enabled to set their creditors at defiance because of the impossibility of making them bankrupt; and whether he will have steps taken to relieve the trading community from this difficulty?


The Secretary of State is advised that the difference is more apparent than real, and that the remedy provided to creditors in India is equally effective.
