    In Marshall v Southampton and South-West Hampshire Area Health Authority (No.2) (31 July 1990) EOR34A, the majority of the Court of Appeal holds that Article 6 of the EEC Equal Treatment Directive, which requires Member States to provide adequate remedies for discrimination, does not have direct effect so that it cannot be relied upon to award compensation in excess of the limit laid down by the Sex Discrimination Act 1975.
