    (c)   On  failure  of  a  person  served  with
interrogatories to RETURN, within the thirty days,
[return]   a   sufficient   answer   or   disclose
sufficient assets for execution, or  on  objection
by   such   person  to  the  interrogatories,  the

ACTIONS WITHOUT FURTHER ORDER OF  THE  COURT.  The

justice requires provided the order shall  contain
a  notice  that  failure  to  comply therewith may
subject  the  person  served  to  being  held   in
contempt of court.

the general statutes is repealed and the following
is substituted in lieu thereof:

Possession  of specified personal property that is
sought to be  levied  on;  or  (2)  possession  of
