Abstract The Controller and Auditor-General is one of Parliament's three watchdogs in New Zealand, the others being the Ombudsman and the Commissioner for the Environment. This article demonstrates how the Controller and Auditor-General presently enjoys less statutory protection from executive retribution in the carrying out of his or her role than the other two Parliamentary Officers. The need to recognise and ensure the independence of the Controller and Auditor-General is emphasised.
