§ 28. Mr. RAMSDEN
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether any steps have been taken, in consultation with the Dominions, by which there will be such reciprocity of bankruptcy administration throughout the Empire as will ensure the assets of a debtor being distributed equally among the creditors wherever situated?
§ Mr. AMERY
Despatches were addressed last year to the Governments of the Dominions and to the Governments of the Colonies and Protectorates inquiring whether the provisions of the legislation in force were similar in this respect to the law in this country under which equality of treatment is assured to creditors wherever situated. From the replies already received, it would appear that there. is a considerable measure of uniformity on this point throughout the Empire.
