Smith (a Bankrupt) v Ian Simpson and Co (a Firm) and another: CA 24 Apr 2000

An offer to make payment of a debt which was in effect a conditional tender was not sufficient to halt the creditor’s petition on the debt. The statutory condition that the debt ‘has neither been paid nor secured or compounded’ did not include a payment which was to be avoided if the bankruptcy order was made.
