Re Bullard and Taplin Ltd: ChD 1996

Tne question of whether there was at any time ‘pending court proceedings’ was answered by asking if there existed a court file. The section empowered a court itself to appoint another trustee in bankruptcy. Section 41 of the 1984 Act could be used by the HighCourt to take some control over proceedings for an individual voluntary arrangement in the County Court.
