Mandla and another v Lee and others  IRLR 209 HL (0 other reports)
In upholding a Sikh's complaint of indirect discrimination under the education provisions of the Race Relations Act 1976, the House of Lords in Mandla and another v Lee and others 24.3.83 House of Lords adopts a broad interpretation of the definition of ethnic origins. The decision also establishes that whether people can comply with a requirement or condition depends on whether they can do so consistently with their customs and cultural conditions.
