Company – Name. The Chancery Division held that the natural meaning of the words used in s 216(8) of the Insolvency Act 1986, combined with the mischief/purposive background, led to the conclusion that s 216 did not apply to a partnership, but only to 'a company' which might be wound up under Pt V of the Act. Accordingly, it did not apply to the applicants as partners of a partnership that had been wound up.
