Number of people being declared insolvent rises on credit crisis anniversary
Myra Butterworth, 15:09, Friday 6 August 2010
The number of people declared insolvent has risen as the credit crisis marks its third anniversary.
A total of 34,743 people were declared insolvent during the three months to the end of June, 5 per cent more than during the same period a year earlier, according to the Insolvency Service.
The figures are lowered than the previous quarter, but
experts suggested worse is to come
as public spending cuts come into effect.

We have not seen anything yet. Jobs will start being lost very soon anf THEN the action really begins.

House prices are, like totally, toast man.

The number of companies in England and Wales forced into liquidation fell by a fifth in the second quarter of 2010 compared to the same period a year ago and personal insolvencies may have peaked, data showed on Friday.

The Insolvency Service said 4,080 companies were liquidated between April and June, a shade higher than the first quarter but down 19.1 percent on a year earlier.

Personal insolvencies edged down from record highs hit in the first quarter to 34,743, but were still 5.0 percent higher than a year ago after consistent rises in recent years.

Different spin from Reuters.

Selective use of the press release again.

Q2 2010 figures dropped from Q1 2010 so your experts could also say that insolvencies have peaked as well.

Also were there not loads of predictions from an insolvency practive stated repeatedly that there was going to be mass insolvencies on the high street in 2010. They seem to have gone strangely quiet as well.

This indicator points to events of 2007/2008 & thus can be ignored as we all know that the locked-in recovery is just around the corner.

Keep repeating it - by order.

Aug. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Elliot Gotkine reports on business loans in the U.K. as Prime Minister David Cameron meets with Bank of England Governor Mervyn King to discuss how Britain’s banks can be encouraged to lend more to small and medium-sized firms. (Source: Bloomberg)
U.K. government budget cuts will push more companies into bankruptcy in the second half of this year as departments from education to transport delay or cancel contracts, insolvency practitioners are predicting.
Industry trade body R3 said its members were forecasting
corporate insolvencies will rise as much as 20 percent in the second half
, compared with the first six months, when there were fewer than anticipated.
