  • Race discrimination: "Aids" should be given its plain and ordinary meaning

    15 May 2001

    In Anyanwu and another v South Bank Student Union and another (Commission for Racial Equality intervening), the House of Lords holds that the word "aids" in s.33(1) of the Race Relations Act 1976 is a familiar word in everyday use that bears no technical or special meaning in this context.
