Bankruptcy - Order - Appeal - Exercise of registrar's decision - Registrar refusing adjournment and making bankruptcy order in absence of debtor - Correctness of decision.
It was established that where a litigant in person who had brought an application or an appeal did not attend, but contacted the court requesting an adjournment, the court should be slow to proceed in his absence provided he had not previously sought an adjournment and the court was satisfied that his application or appeal had some prospect of success.
