    In Rolls Royce plc v Doughty (28.7.87) EOR16B, the EAT holds that the company (before it was privatised) was not a State employer against whom the provisions of the Equal Treatment Directive relating to discriminatory retirement ages could be directly enforced. Another division of the EAT has held that British Gas, before privatisation, was not a State authority.
