    In Hartup v Sandwell Metropolitan Council a Birmingham industrial tribunal (Chair: J H Croom-Johnson) rules that being "Afro-Caribbean/Asian" was a genuine occupational qualification for the post of home-help as the job entailed providing elderly members from the Afro-Caribbean and Asian communities with personal services which promoted their welfare and which could most effectively be provided by people from these racial groups.
