Under UK insolvency law there is no provision for a creditors or liquidation committee to be formed in a case when the court has made a compulsory winding up order and the Official Receiver (a statutory office holder employed by the government) is appointed as liquidator, as has happened with the Thomas Cook group companies. Therefore, creditors cannot request the formation of such a committee.
