This is really a matter for the Committee of Public Accounts, which has very specific procedures for dealing with such matters. The provision does not mean the president cannot express views on a variety of issues outside of that context but we are dealing here with a very specific context of accounting for the spending of moneys within the institution. I do not know the Standing Orders of the Committee of Public Accounts but I assume they relate to how the committee does its work.

Please don't give up on this one. Anybody should be able to criticise the government and its policies full stop.
