40. The Minister of Finance shall, within three days after a writ of referendum is issued, send to the official agent of each national committee the amount of subsidy that the National Assembly may fix at the time when it adopts the text of a question or a bill that is to be submitted to the referendum. The amount of such subsidy must be the same for each of the national committees.
Where the number of electors entered on the lists of electors is used to fix the amount of the subsidy, the National Assembly may, not later than 60 days after the polling, adjust the subsidy to take account of the additional number of electors entered on the lists of electors used for the polling. The Minister of Finance shall, within three days after the date on which he is informed of this number, pay the supplementary amount of the subsidy to the official agent of each national committee.
