Judgement for the case R v SoS for Employment, ex p Seymour-Smith & Perez

(HL)Using the test set out by the ECJ, the HL, by a majority, decided that the discrimination was justifiable. 
Lord Nicholls: The test from the ECJ for objective justification is a broad one, reflecting the need for the government to be able to govern without having unrealistic burdens imposed on it. 
Lord Slynn (dissenting): There was no indirect discrimination, looking at the actual figures.
