Companies - Winding up - Petition - Application by Secretary of State for appointment of provisional liquidator - Application for order restraining advertisement of winding up petition - Consideration of factors.
On an application by the Secretary of State for the appointment of provisional liquidators in respect of two companies which were the subject of a pending petition for winding up in the public interest, the court ruled, inter alia, that there was no advantage in appointing provisional liquidators whose costs might have to be met out of the companies' assets if the implementation of another regime might preserve those assets for the companies' creditors.
