The Case

The debtor's appeal against the chief registrar's order to award the local authority 75% of its costs despite dismissing its bankruptcy petition was dismissed on the basis that there was nothing in the evidence before the court to indicate that the chief registrar had come to a decision that he had not been entitled to reach.
