He was appointed par- ameDlary secretary to tns nistcr of finance, jalcr he was named lo tho binet by L. B. Pearson in 1961 d given the post o! national venue minister. He was infed president of the treas- ry board in 1966. Ha was med minister ot finance in. and continued In that diffi- jit post until January, 1972. He took on the rough assign- ent of formulating Hie tax re- rm measure and guiding it rough parliament.

Mr. Benson has indicated to lose friends that he had no great desire to continue in Par- lament by seeking re-election. While considering a job in pri- ;ate industry Mr. Benson has ilso been mentioned as in line or an important government appointment. At one time there were ru- mors lhat he might be offered the presidency of the Canadian National Railways. However it was recognized in Liberal gov- ernment circles lhat such an ap- pointment would stir up political controversy. When Mr. Pickersgill decided (o retire early so that he can re- sume the academic life that ho likes and also write a book on his 35 years in Ottawa as a fed- eral cabinet minister and public servant, Mr. Benson was appar- ently considered by Mr. Tru- dcau as a possible successor.
