"I was sorry to hear from a constituent that i2i has stopped trading and that apparently sums of money are owing to people who had put a deposit down. I have taken this up with Ministers to see if there is a scheme for compensation."

The above optician shop has closed, owing sums of money to customers who have put down deposits on spectacles.
I wonder if you would be good enough to let me know whether there is some statutory scheme under which they get compensation?
