HC Deb 18 December 1980 vol 996 c255W
Mr. Budgen

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether he has reached any decision regarding the proposals in the Green Paper on bankruptcy; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Eyre

No final decision has yet been taken. I am at present reviewing the proposals, in the light of the informed and useful comments received, against the background of the need to simplify the present bankruptcy procedure and to make the most effective use possible of the Official Receiver's skilled staff.
