The main points covered by Stuart are:

* A discussion of the proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim * The arguments in the case of Seldon and the guidance given by the Supreme Court following its dismissal of the claim * The case of Woodcock v Cumbria PCT regarding the cost justification defence * The case of HM Land Registry v Benson in which the the EAT ruled that the ET should have accepted the limited resources indicated by the respondent as a legitimate aim while weighing it against its discriminatory impact.
