§ 21. Mr. Ashdown
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he is satisfied that all interested parties have been consulted during the process of preparation of proposals for the implementation of reforms to the law relating to insolvency, following the Cork report.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
Many comments on the recommendations of the Insolvency Law Review Committee were received from interested bodies who were individually invited to do so and from others who responded to a general invitation. Consultation has taken place and is continuing on some subjects; a further opportunity for comment will be given after the proposals are published shortly in a White Paper.
