12. In section 281(5)(a) of the Insolvency Act 1986 (discharge from bankruptcy not to release bankrupt from liaility in respect of personal injuries), for the word 'being' there shall be substituted the words "or to pay damages by virtue of Part I of the Consumer Protection Act 1987, being in either case".".
§ Lord Lucas of Chilworth
My Lords, I beg to move that this House do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 21. The purpose of this amendment is to ensure that a discharge from bankruptcy does not release the bankrupt from liability to pay damages under Part I of the Bill. I beg to move.
§ Moved, That this House do agree with the Commons in the said amendment.—(Lord Lucas of Chilworth.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
