Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, April 17, 1970 Henderson Rumpus Case To Be Aired OTTAWA (CP) - The current conflict involving some cabinet ministers and the role of the auditor-general is scheduled for a full airing by the Commons public accounts committee.

FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE! OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO U08 /ih Si S L.'thhr cint? Phmie 32' '3609 ings begin before May 5 to consider the role of the auditor-general. The subcommittee on agenda and procedure said "it is expected that at these meetings,-those persons who have expressed views on this matter will appear before the committee', particularly those in the' government and also in the public service, who have views to express on the auditor-general's role in Parliament." Disagreement on the role of Auditor-General Maxwell Henderson arose a few weeks ago after he banded in his 1969 report which, as usual, cast a critical eye over waste in government spending. Treasury Board President C. M. 'Drury and Privy Council President Donald S. Macdonald both publicly criticized the auditor-general for allegedly carrying his criticisms into the field of policy. Prime Minister Trudeau and External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp have said the role of Hie auditor-general should be clarified in this respect. Mr. Hales said in an interview Mr. Henderson's 1969 report contains a reference to proposed new legislation concerning his office and this would enable the committee to study all aspects of such legjslation. Mr. Henderson is in Geneva carrying out an audit for the United Nations. He is due to return to Ottawa April 30.
