“The Government has decided to take forward changes just to the process for dealing with debtor bankruptcy applications and has today included the measure as a proposed new clause in the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill. Instead of applying to the court for a bankruptcy order, individuals will instead make a bankruptcy application to an Adjudicator, which would be a new office based within the Insolvency Service.” (Jo Swinson MP, 9 October 2012)
