Yes statutory auditor can use work done by internal auditor with respect to “observation of inventory count” conducted by management. this is specified in SA 610 as example of work of internal audit which can be used.
after following procedures given in SA 610 he can use his work.
SA 501 is silent about this point.

Further statutory auditor needs to have full control over external confirmation as per SA 505, so he cannot delegate this work to internal auditor and take his direct assistance
