Thank you that's a weight off my mind !
Your answer was brilliant thank you, and it enabled me to write with confidence this morning to the Insolvency Practitioner in advance of the CVA meeting on Wednesday, to challenge that our debt is actually in dispute (as we have never received any detail of the grounds for dispute and the debt though we have received occasional payment in part, has been accumulating over several years) and I have stated to the Insolvency Practitioner that I believe the "dispute" appears therefore nothing more than a device employed specifically in order to adversely affect our influence at the CVA vote.
Our quantified debt is a tad over 25% of the total unsecured debt and I have said that should the "disputed debt" affect our vote, we would seek further legal advice.
I have yet to hear back from them !
