Bankruptcy - Trustee in bankruptcy - Powers - Sufficient sanction of powers.
There was a real analogy between a bankruptcy petition and equitable execution as processes for the recovery of funds. In the instant case, although a trustee in bankruptcy had been authorised to recover funds, it was plain that that end had been contemplated by the presentation of a petition and the subsequent bankruptcy order. Accordingly, the trustee had not exceeded his powers and it could not be said the bankruptcy petition and the order were invalid.
