Mr ROBERTON - I have to say with some pride that the report was substantially correct. To me, this is a matter of faith and conscience. I believe that the gift of life is the greatest gift of God. For any authority to reach the decision that at a certain age a woman's effective life shall end and that at a later age, or at the same age, a man's effective life shall end is a form of cruelty that 1 find it difficult to condone. To my certain knowledge, it leads invariably to a process of physical decay and spiritual desolation.
