Official Receiver v McKay [2009] EWCA Civ 467; [2009] WLR (D) 191

“Where the only proven debt against a bankrupt’s estate had been withdrawn by the creditor for whatever reason, the court was empowered under s 282(1)(b) of the Insolvency Act 1986 to annul the bankruptcy order on the footing that the proven debt no longer existed at the time the annulment order was made, without investigating whether the proven debt had been fully paid or expunged.”
