(p.574) 31 Non-discrimination and Equality
The Judicial House of Lords 1876–2009

This chapter considers the House of Lords' jurisprudence on discrimination and equality. At a particular time in the battle for equality it may be necessary to fight for the right to be treated in the same way as the dominant group. At another stage it may be necessary to fight for the recognition of difference so that true substantive equality can be achieved. As the prohibited grounds of discrimination in domestic law are broadened to include age, sexual orientation, and religion or belief, the issues are likely to become even more complicated and controversial as these may well be inconsistent with one another. There is still much work to be done, by the courts as well as in Parliament.
