HC Deb 09 March 1988 vol 129 cc263-4W
29. Mr. Anthony Coombs

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many company liquidations there were in Hereford and Worcester in the year 1983 to date.

Mr. Maude

Company liquidations are not analysed by county, but Hereford and Worcester are part of the area administered by the Official Receiver's office in Gloucester, which processed an estimated 351 compulsory liquidations in the years 1983 to 1987. No regional analysis is available of creditors' voluntary liquidations, the other type of insolvent company liquidation.
