Receivers: are “crooks”? commented on some of the most strikingly-phrased evidence given at hearings of the Senate Select Committee Inquiry into Lending to Primary Production Customers, and Receivers: are “inhuman”? discussed the responses of the committee members to the testimony (available here) that they had heard.
Some turnaround and restructuring professionals have expressed concern about the risk that the Inquiry might conclude without the benefit of an explanation of the duties and obligations of the registered liquidators who undertake such receivership roles, or information about the level of scrutiny and regulation imposed by the Corporations Act and applied by ASIC.
Those concerned will be pleased that ARITA has been invited to give evidence to a hearing in Canberra on 20 October, which should be broadcast live via the browser-based ParlView service, available here.
ARITA President Ross McClymont, CEO John Winter, and Technical & Standards Director Narelle Ferrier will give evidence at 12 noon.
