Insolvency Service Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Insolvency Service,

I am a master of law student at the London School of Economics. I am now looking for the statistics/report on the number of litigation/cases of section 214 IA 1986 (wrongful trading provision) that has been brought to the Court during the last 5- 10 years.

Could you please provide me with such information?

Yours faithfully,

David.Baker, Insolvency Service

Thank you for your email of 26 July addressed to the Insolvency Service’s
FOI team.


As section 214 IA 1986 cases involve private litigation by insolvency
practitioners, there is no obligation on those insolvency practitioners to
advise the Insolvency Service of such action. Consequently the Insolvency
Service has no statistics to offer you for section 214 cases “brought the
Court during the last 5-10 years”.


Yours faithfully

Dear David.Baker,

I can find the information I exactly ask from you from the Companies house, which is another executive agency of the Department for BIS (same as you). May be this can be an advice you can give to others if you face the same question.

Yours sincerely,
