Henderson Controversy Still Simmers OTTAWA (CP) govern- ment denied Tuesday that it has criticized Auditor-General Max- well Henderson for carrying cut his duties. Bat cabinet ministers said the opposition is jeopardiz- ing Mr. Henderson's objectivity by dragging him into partisan politics. Treasury Board President C. M. Drury said the Commons public'accounts committee, under. Conservative Chairman Alf Hales, had instructed Mr. Henderson to judge policies laid down by'Parliament- Mr. Drury: referred specifi- cally1 to Mr. Henderson's .criti- cism spending on the scrapped Northumberland Strait crossing. If Mr. Henderson was asked lo give an opinion on matters that had been "thoroughly de- bated in the House, he runs the risk of being drawn into such a debate in a partisan way."
