I am not aware that my Department has received any recent representations on the governance of the Insolvency Service or the practices of its insolvency administrators (official receivers).

The Insolvency Service continuously strives to improve its services to businesses and conducts extensive discussions with its key stakeholders to achieve this. The service is also subject to my Department's rolling internal audit programme.
