At any time when the official receiver is the trustee of a bankrupt's estate by virtue of any provision of the Insolvency Act 1986, 1he may apply to the Secretary of State for the appointment of a person as trustee instead of the official receiver2. On such an application the Secretary of State must either make an appointment or decline to make one3.
Where the trustee of a bankrupt's estate has been appointed by the Secretary of State4, the trustee must give notice to the bankrupt's creditors of his appointment or, if the court so allows, must advertise his appointment
