(8) A determination of a reference under paragraph (4) may contain such directions (including directions as to payment) as the Department or, as the case may be, the person appointed under paragraph (6) considers appropriate to resolve the matter in dispute; and it shall be the duty of the parties to the [F32HSC contract] in question to comply with any such directions.

(9) Without prejudice to the generality of the powers exercisable on a reference under paragraph (4), the Department or, as the case may be, the person appointed under paragraph (6) may in a determination in relation to an arrangement constituting an [F32HSC contract] vary the terms of the arrangement or bring it to an end; and where the arrangement is so varied or brought to an end—

(10) Where a body or person mentioned in paragraph (2)(g), (h), (i) or (j) is a party or prospective party to an arrangement or proposed arrangement which—

(a)falls within paragraph (1); and
