It is now more than thirty years since the reform of corporate insolvency law in the United Kingdom (UK) focused on the promotion of a 'rescue culture,' a trend which started with the work of the Cork Committee chaired by Sir Kenneth Cork. The Cork Committee in its Report recommended encouraging the continuation and disposal of a corporate debtors' business as a going concern wherever possible, and the Government responded to Cork's recommendation by introducing Administration and Company Voluntary Arrangement ('CVA') in the Insolvency Act 1986 ('IA 1986'). The corporate insolvency laws in the UK have been subject to considerable scrutiny and reform, culminating in the implementation of two distinct but related nieces of legislation bearing upon corporate rescue; the Insolvency Act 2000 (IA 2000) and the Enterprise Act 2002 (EA).
