Re O'Shaughnessy (deceased); Abdulali (trustee in bankruptcy) v Finnegan and another

Bankruptcy – Preference. A district judge had not erred in concluding that a payment, which the deceased had made to the first respondent prior to the deceased's death and less than two years prior to his bankruptcy in order to repay a loan, had not amounted to a voidable preference under s 340 of the Insolvency Act 1986. The Chancery Division so ruled in dismissing the trustee in bankruptcy's appeal concerning proceedings which the trustee had instituted following the deceased's death.
