Re A Debtor (Order in Aid No 1 of 1979) ex parte Viscount of the Royal Court of Jersey: 1981

The court noted the differences in bankruptcy law between England and Jersey: ‘The word ‘bankruptcy’ in section 122, if indeed it refers at all to process of bankruptcy, must, in my judgment, be construed in a wide sense, for the section is designed to produce co-operation between courts acting under different systems of law, and it would be much restricted if extended only to jurisdictions which reproduce all the main features of English procedure. Dodd J took much the same view of a similar provision in the Bankruptcy (Ireland) Amendment Act 1872: see In re Bolton [1920] 2 IR 324, 327.’
