Subject: Insolvency Other related subjects: Mining

Keywords: Administration; Administrators' powers and duties; Coal industry; Creditors' meetings; Insolvency practitioners' proposals; Proposals; Reasonable excuse

Summary: It was appropriate to direct the administrators of a company in administration not to comply with the requirements of the Insolvency Act 1986 Sch.B1 para.49 and para.51, as commercial necessity rendered compliance pointless.

Member of Chambers: Stephen Atherton QC for the adminsitrators (instructed by Addleshaw Goddard)
