In re British Aviation Insurance Company Ltd: ChD 21 Jul 2005

Complaint was made that the turn-out at the meeting to approve the proposed scheme of arrangement was about 15% representing just over half in value of the total claims, judged in each case by reference to ‘actual or pending’ claims. Counsel for the company pointed out that the relatively low number was not unusual by the standards of schemes of arrangement.
Held: Lewison J said that the turn-out was not in itself a valid reason for refusing to endorse the majority view.
