Excerpt:
provincial insolvency act (v of 1920), section 9 - adjudication based on act of insolvency not relied on in petition, whether legal. - 1. i am inclined to take the view that the appellant has been adjudicated on an act of insolvency not relied on in the application against him. the act of insolvency alleged in the application was the 'sale of the property to a person who was not a creditor. that might have been an act of insolvency with reference to section 53 of the act. what however, the judge found was that an act of insolvency had been committed because the appellant had preferred some of the creditors by paying them off out of the proceeds of the sale. that seems to me to be a very different matter. the petitioning creditors did not put it forward. it was the appellant that put it forward as a defence.2. i would dismiss the application, allowing the appeal with costs.pandalai, j.3. i agree.
Judgment:
1. I am inclined to take the view that the appellant has been adjudicated on an act of Insolvency not relied on in the application against him. The act of insolvency alleged in the application was the 'sale of the property to a person who was not a creditor. That might have been an act of insolvency with reference to Section 53 of the Act. What however, the Judge found was that an act of insolvency had been committed because the appellant had preferred some of the creditors by paying them off out of the proceeds of the sale. That seems to me to be a very different matter. The petitioning creditors did not put it forward. It was the appellant that put it forward as a defence.

2. I would dismiss the application, allowing the appeal with costs.

Pandalai, J.

3. I agree.
