Annotation: This paper describes the origin, function, and scope of Money Payment Supervision Orders (MPSO's) and their place in the fine enforcement procedure in England.
Abstract: It looks at the potential for this type of order, as well as pointing out the limitations, using three case histories to illustrate the variety of use. It concludes that, with a clarification of the legal definition concerning the order, more positive use could be made of it as a means of avoiding imprisonment for default.
