Excerpt from Abolition of Distress:

The Ministry of Justice recently ended consultation on a paper entitled “Transforming Bailiff Action”.

The proposals in the paper that are likely to be of key interest to readers of OI are those regarding the much delayed bringing into force of provisions in the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007.
