Victorian Insolvency

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the Parliament's decision to abandon the creditor-managed system of bankruptcy administration in England in 1883. During this period, most of the reforms that extended the role of government in the supervision of the bankruptcy system had widespread support and they were for the most part uncontroversial. In addition, the influence of business organizations opposing ‘officialism’ was not as great as it had been in 1869 because of the failure of the creditor-managed system that they had previously supported.
