Retarded Childrens Aid Society v Day: CA 1978

Lord Russell of Killowen said: ‘The function of the Employment Appeal Tribunal is to correct errors of law where one is established and identified. I think care must be taken to avoid concluding that an experienced industrial tribunal by not expressly mentioning some point or breach has overlooked it.’ It should not examine the tribunal decision with a ‘fine-tooth comb’.
Lord Denning MR said: ‘So reading between the lines, it seems to me that, although not explicitly stated in the Reasons, this Tribunal very probably did have all the considerations in mind which it is not suggested they may not have had.’
