Re Safier; Safier v Wardell and another (joint trustees in bankruptcy of Safier) and another

Bankruptcy – Annulment. The Chancery Division held that, on the proper construction of the relevant legislation, the receipt of third party funds to pay off a bankruptcy debt was not part of the trustees in bankruptcy's function and the money was not payable into the Insolvency Services Account. Accordingly, the Secretary of State's administration fee was not payable by the applicant.
