Hon. Members should find out what Archie Andrews looks like, and then look at the hon. Member for Surrey Heath. They will see a remarkable resemblance.

Clause 418 defines what is meant by the term ''insolvency practitioner''. Subsection (4)(b) makes reference to section 388(5) of the Insolvency Act 1986 and its reference to the official receiver. That subsection of the 1986 Act also refers to the Scottish equivalent of the official receiver, the accountant in bankruptcy, and amendment No. 600 is designed to make that clear.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 418, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 419 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Further consideration adjourned.—[Mrs. McGuire.]

Adjourned accordingly at nine minutes past Seven o'clock till Thursday 31 January at quarter-past Nine o'clock.
