Are Sam Smiths Pubs discriminating against partially sighted?
I was in a Samuel Smiths pub last night and learned that a
partially sighted man was told he was not allowed to read his newspaper on an electronic
device because they have been banned by the owner.
There are print versions of newspapers in the pub, and fully
sighted customers are allowed to read books.
This seems like discrimination to me. Do you think the partially sighted man I spoke to might have a legal case against the chain?
