§ 40. Mr. Thurnham
To ask the Attorney-General whether he has received any representations about his criteria for deciding on the granting of relator proceedings; and if he will make a statement.
§ The Attorney-General
Representations have been made in the context of recent proceedings brought against Barratt Manchester Ltd. and Bolton metropolitan borough council. The solicitor to the two relators concerned has confirmed that one of them is an undischarged bankrupt. Despite his making the usual inquiries, this was not known to him or the Attorney-General at the time consent was granted. The relator concerned has now withdrawn from the action.
