Howell v Hughes and others

Bankruptcy – Petition. The applicant's application for a stay, and to re-impose an earlier order in the relevant bankruptcy proceedings, failed. The Chancery Division held that the circumstances did not justify a general stay of the order. Further, the balance came down in favour of refusing to exercise the discretion in r 10.32(5) of the Insolvency Rules 2016 to order that there be no notification of the bankruptcy order to the Land Registry or publication in the Gazette.
