It was not discriminatory to ask a white applicant for the post of director of the Oldham Racial Equality Council whether she would have "any problems dealing with the ethnic minority community", rules a Manchester industrial tribunal (Chair: R Peters) in Hall v (1) Commission for Racial Equality and (2) Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council.

Joanne Hall was the only white candidate shortlisted for the job of director of the Oldham Racial Equality Council (REC).
