These Regulations make provision about how voluntary trust deeds entered into by debtors for the benefit of their creditors become protected from action by creditors. They also provide with respect to the consequences of a trust deed being granted that status, the rights of creditors, the discharge of the debtor and trustee from the trust deed, the administration of trust deeds, the conditions which must be met for a debtor to be discharged of debts and obligations under the protected trust deed and appeals against decisions of the Accountant in Bankruptcy. A trust deed has the status of a protected trust deed if: (a) the conditions set out in these Regulations are met; and (b) it is registered under in the register of insolvencies. Also a debtor must not have his or her estate sequestrated in the case that the trustee in the sequestration has not been discharged under section 57 or 58A of the Bankruptcy (Scotland) Act 1985.

The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
