(a)for the determination, whether—

(i)by agreement, or

(ii)(in default of agreement) by the Welsh Ministers or an arbitrator appointed by them,

of the amount of any payments which need to be made by one body to another for the purposes of the effective operation of the specified arrangements, and for the variation of any such determination,

(b)specifying the manner in which the amount of any such payments must be so determined (or varied),
