3. The Minister may, for the purpose of establishing and maintaining the pension plan, grant subsidies to the permit holders referred to in section 1 or to an association representing such permit holders, out of the moneys voted annually for that purpose by the National Assembly.
In the same manner, the Minister may grant subsidies to provide for the payment of the sums which permit holders and associations are required to pay annually under the established pension plan and the Supplemental Pension Plans Act (chapter R-15.1). For that purpose, the Minister may withhold such sums from the subsidies granted and pay them directly to the administrator of the pension plan. The sums so withheld are unseizable in the hands of the Minister.
