The Insolvency (Northern Ireland) Order 1989

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally made).

15.—(1) Where a bankruptcy order is made under this Order on or after the commencement date, a person is not guilty of an offence under Chapter VI of Part IX in respect of anything done before that date; but, notwithstanding the repeal by Article 382 and Schedule 10 of sections 11, 12 and 13(4) of the Debtors (Ireland) Act 1872(1) and sections 25 and 26 of the Bankruptcy Amendment Act (Northern Ireland) 1929 is guilty of an offence under the Act of 1872 or 1929 in respect of anything done before the commencement date which would have been an offence under that Act if the making of the bankruptcy order had been the making of an adjudication order under the Bankruptcy Acts.

(2) Paragraph (5) of Article 321 of this Order applies (instead of section 25(2) or 26(2) of the Bankruptcy Amendment Act (Northern Ireland) 1929) in relation to proceedings for an offence under that Act which are instituted (whether by virtue of sub-paragraph (1) or otherwise) after the commencement date.
