Secretary of State for Trade and Industry v Collins and others: CA 13 Jan 2000

A disqualified director applied for consent to act in the management of a company before his disqualification had expired. He succeeded, and the judge made no award for costs. On appeal by the Secretary of State it was held that the lifting of the disqualification was a matter purely for the discretion of the judge. Guidance was given as to the form of such applications. However given the Secretary of State’s special position, his costs should normally be paid by the applicant.
