Amendment No. 383 introduces a new clause which creates within the United Kingdom a complete system of reciprocal enforcement of judicial orders in respect of bankruptcy, winding up, receivership and the new administration order procedure. Furthermore, United Kingdom and other relevant courts will be able to assist each other in the field of insolvency law and by applying rules of private international law determine the law which it is most appropriate to apply when matters arise in an insolvency which involves more than one of the the insolvency jurisdictions in the United Kingdom.

I particularly mention Amendments Nos. 383A to 383D and 383F to 383L. These are new amendments which are being made to assist the working of the clause. They have been made following consultation between authorities of the three United Kingdom jurisdictions. The other amendments are also aimed to that end.

Moved, That this House do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 359.—(Lord Cameron of Lochbroom.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
