3. Subtract from the amount obtained in paragraph 2 all of the payments for its fiscal year in respect of the long-term debt and the other financial commitments, liabilities and contractual obligations of the board described in paragraphs 1 and 2 of section 2 other than the payments of principal and interest for that fiscal year on debentures and long-term debts of which the Minister has agreed to pay the board the amount of the yearly principal and interest payments.
