“I have spent several years workings with R3 to publicise the major issues which affect businesses and individuals in financial crisis, looking at key areas where we can make a difference,” he said.

“Locally, the effects of the credit crunch and the current surge in debt levels are of particular concern to me as chairman. We are fortunate that recent government reform is starting to provide significant opportunities for us to avoid insolvency and protect individuals, companies and creditors.”
