Bankruptcy (Scotland) Act 2016: Subordinate Legislation


Call for evidence

The Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee launched a call for written evidence as part of its consideration of secondary legislation arising from the Bankruptcy (Scotland) Act 2016.

The 2016 Act consolidates the law of bankruptcy. It brings together existing legislation to create one accessible piece of bankruptcy law in one place. The following Scottish statutory instruments arising from the Act were laid before the Scottish Parliament:

Bankruptcy (Scotland) Regulations 2016 [draft];

Protected Trust Deeds (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2016 [draft];

Protected Trust Deeds (Forms) (Scotland) Regulations 2016 [draft];

Bankruptcy (Applications and Decisions) (Scotland) Regulations 2016 (SSI 2016/295);

Bankruptcy (Scotland) Act 2016 (Commencement) Regulations 2016 (SSI 2016/294 (C.27)).

To inform the Committee's consideration of this secondary legislation the Committee welcomed views on the instruments. The Committee then considered the instruments at its meeting on 1 November 2016 and published its report shortly thereafter.
