Discrimination - Racial discrimination - Employment - Armed forces - Application of human rights convention to complaint of race discrimination brought by member of armed forces - Race Relations Act 1976, s 4(2) - Human Rights Act 1998, Sch 1, art 6.
The right created by s4(2) of the Race Relations Act1976 was not a common law tort, but rather an employment right, and accordingly a soldier, as a public servant, could not invoke art6 of the European Convention on Human Rights to set aside regulations made under the Act relating to his right to bring a complaint under s4(2) of the Act.
