June 22, 1926 (15th Parliament, 1st Session)

CON

Henry Herbert Stevens

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEVENS:

No, the evidence does not show that. My hon. friend knows, and the House is well aware, that political parties old and new receive subscriptions from various sources, and I have no doubt that subscriptions have been received from that source. I say to my hon. friend, however, that so far as I know I have never seen or known of a dollar subscribed by that source in any campaign in which I participated. I am not denying that it was done, but I will say that there is no evidence before the committee that such subscriptions were made. The only evidence was that there were certain sums which the auditors said were unaccounted for by any other means, and my hon. friend can take what he likes from that.
