Bankruptcy review hailed

Have your say

Citizens Advice Scotland has welcomed the Scottish Law Commission’s efforts to “tidy up” the legislation relating to bankruptcy in Scotland.

The commission announced a consultation yesterday, aimed at consolidating existing legislation.

CAS chief executive Lucy McTernan said: “The rise in personal debt over recent years has made bankruptcy a real option for more and more people.

“We don’t celebrate or welcome that, but it is a fact. And it makes sense to adapt our legal system accordingly.”
