Where a bankrupt is discharged, the discharge releases him from all the bankruptcy debts1, but has no effect:
(1) on the functions, so far as they remain to be carried out, of the trustee of his estate2; or
(2) on the operation, for the purposes of the carrying out of those functions, of the provisions of Part 9 of the Insolvency Act 1986;
and, in particular, discharge does not affect the right of any creditor of the bankrupt to prove in the bankruptcy3
