I scarcely think that
changing the word "advancing" to "advanced" would meet the exigencies of the case. If we fix sixty-five years as the age at which the commission can lay hands on an official, what does the minister consider as "advanced age" before sixty-five? A man may be of advanced age at the age of fifty-five, and again a man of eighty-five may be able to earn his remuneration. I think it would be well to strike out that phrase entirely.
