*Clarke v Cognita Schools Ltd (trading as Hydesville Tower School)

Bankruptcy – Order in aid of British court. The defendant obtained judgment against the claimants and served statutory demands on them. They were subsequently made bankrupt. The claimants submitted that the orders ought to have contained a statement notifying them that they could apply to have the orders set aside, varied or stayed. The Chancery Division held that an order under r 6.5(1) of the Insolvency Rules 1986, SI 1986/1925, did not have to state that the debtor could apply to have it set aside, varied or stayed and, therefore, that the orders were not defective.
