Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'...Naturally the Insurance Companies are feeling a bit sick and when the report is delved into, this is hardly to be wondered at. I have only read a wee bit of the report so far, but one thing has struck me. It does not seem right, as Sir William points out, that Insurance Companies should make money, and so much of it too, on human life and suffering.'
