142. Trustees.

Where there are more trustees than one, as a general rule, they must all join as petitioning creditors. A person to whom a debt is due as a bare trustee may present a petition in certain cases, for example, when the beneficial owner of the debt is under disability1; but, when a debt is due to a person as a bare trustee for an absolute beneficial owner who is capable of dealing with the debt as he pleases, the trustee alone cannot present a petition on the debt, and the beneficial owner must join as co-petitioner
