(3)For the purposes of this section the Northern Ireland share and the Isle of Man share of the balance calculated for any financial year shall be taken respectively to be the amounts which bear to the whole of that balance the same proportion as the population of Northern Ireland or, as the case may be, the Isle of Man, bears to the total population of the United Kingdom and the Isle of Man, as determined by the last census taken before the end of the financial year under the Census Act 1920 or any corresponding enactment in force in Northern Ireland or the Isle of Man.

(4)For the purposes of this section the expenses of administration for a financial year shall be taken to be so much of the expenses incurred by any government department in that year as, in the opinion of the Treasury, is properly attributable to the exercise of the Minister of Power's functions under section 1 of the Continental Shelf Act 1964 and shall include an amount representing liability in respect of benefits that may become payable under the Superannuation Act 1965 in respect of persons employed in that year in connection with that Act.
