Journal of the Dublin Statistical Society Vol.III, Part XX, 1862
The two suggestions I propose
for the amendment of the Irish Bankruptcy Law. First — That the
Judge of the Bankrupt Court should be empowered to punish by
imprisonment any bankrupt who may have committed any fraud or
offence against the Bankruptcy Laws, or whose insolvency is attributable
to rash speculation or unjustifiable extravagance, or who
may have been guilty of any misconduct in relation to his trade.
And secondly — that every bankrupt who shall- pay less than 20s.
in the pound, and who shall at any time subsequently acquire a
certain sum of money or yearly income, shall from time to time be
compellable to apply a portion of such money or income towards the
payment of his debts due at the date of his bankruptcy, - until same be paid in full.
