    1 September 1988

    In Foster and others v British Gas plc (13.5.88) EOR21E, the Court of Appeal holds that whether a public employer is an "emanation of the State" so as to give its employees directly enforceable rights under EEC law depends upon whether its powers fall within the province of government.
