Henry Herbert Stevens (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEVENS:

Free of charge, yes. That is his position and he is recognized as a very

useful and competent solicitor in that class of work. In addition to that there are some major matters of litigation that may and do come up, and for that purpose, if I am not mistaken, the board retains the services of Mr. Travers Sweatman, K.C.. of Winnipeg. I presume that where necessity warrants it, in matters of sufficient importance, they retain other solicitors as well. I am sorry I have not the particulars of the expenditures for legal services over the past five years.
