Bain v Bowles and others  IRLR 356 CA (0 other reports)
In Bain v Bowles and others (19 April 1991) EOR39B, while holding that "The Lady" magazine contravened the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 by refusing to publish an advertisement for a housekeeper from a man living alone, the Court of Appeal points out that the "like with like" comparison required by s.5(3) is merely an interpretation provision. It cannot be relied upon as an exception to the Act.
