Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Drury Admits Auditor-General Doing Good Job OTTAWA (CP) - Treasury Board President C. M. Drury told the Commons public ac-counts committe 'here that Auditor-General Maxwell Henderson is "a responsible man and he does a responsible job." Mr. Drury was replying to Harold Winch (NDP-Vancou-vcr East) who wts quizzing him on comments he made on a television show April 11. The comments were widely interpreted as criticism of the auditor general. The auditor general was not at the committee hearing. He wrote committee chairman Alf Hales (PC-Wellington) saying it was not in the public interest for him to engage in debate with a minister of the Crown. The committee inquiry into the office of the auditor general was set up following remarks interpreted as criticism of Mr. Henderson by Mr. Drury, Privy Council President Donald Mac donald and Prime Minister Tro deau. Mr. Winch pressed Mr. Drury to explain a statement he made on the CBC-TV public affairs program Encounter. Mr. Drury had said the audi tor general had expressed his view on the appropriateness of some government policies. The government naturally didn't agree with every criticism, "I wonder myself whether the auditor-general should cast himself in this role, or whether we should look for really another kind of person to be auditor general," he said on the program. Replying to Mr. Winch, Mr. Drury read from the transcript of the program in which interviewer Charles Lynch claimed the auditor general found "idiocy" and "lunacy" in some government accounts. The treasury board president had disagreed with this view of what the auditor general had done. Mr. Drury said his reply to Mr. Lynch was intended to mean that if the auditor general was finding idiocy and luncy in government accounts he "isn't the man we want." "It wasn't criticism of the auditor general but the reverse, I don't think it should be the job of the auditor general to portray idiocy and lunacy." Mr. Winch asked Mr. Drury whether the auditor general Is finding idiocy and lunacy. "No, I don't think he does,' Mr. Drury said. "He's a respon sible man and he does a respon. sible job." In an opening statement to the committee, Mr. Drury re- peated views he expressed in the Commons about the role of the auditor general. He said the auditor general should not comment on policy matters. Remarks should be confined ot the "legality and probity" of government accounting procedures. Policy discussion belongs to Parliament, Mr. Drury said. He suggested government de- C. M. DRURY . . Under Attack OffOWCIIOIfDIi SEE THE EXCIW6.

Replying to Gerald Baldwin (PC-Peace River), Mr. Drury said there is sometimes a fine line between what should be commented on by the auditor general and what should not. The government occasionally has to take one loss in order not to incur a larger one, the treasury board president said. He hoped the auditor general would not report the lesser loss. DEBATED IN COMMONS Referring to Mr. Henderson's criticism of government spending on the scrapped Northum-berland causeway, Mr. Drury said he docs not sec what purpose is served by commenting on something already debated in the Commons. Speaking of the auditor general's salary, he said the government would like to peg it to the salaries of the proposed fed eral judges. The federal judges are to receive $36,000, The auditor general now earns $30,000. Jack Cullen (L-Sarnia) ob jected to the Toronto Globe and Mail and the Montreal Gazette printing excerpts from the auditor general's 1969 report before they are discussed by the public accounts committee. The 1909 report was made public in March but the committee has not yet completed a review of the 1968 report.
