The spirit of this study has been one of qualified pessimism. This results partly from the particular failings of the Act which have been criticised in various chapters. Four especially stand out: the weakness of the remedial powers available, and their timid use by industrial tribunals; the refusal to establish separate tribunals to hear all cases under the Act (possibly combined with jurisdiction over sex discrimination cases as well) ; the absence of effective devices to overcome the severe difficulties of proof under which discrimination complainants inevitably labour; and the failure of central government and the public sector generally to take the lead in eradicating discrimination. However, the disquiet runs deeper than criticisms at this level of specificity.
