(b)in any other case, subject to paragraph (2), a contract constituting or including an agreement which provides for the carrying out of work by a council; and “functional work” means—

(a)work carried out by a council, other than work carried out under a works contract; and

(b)work which is carried out otherwise than by a council but which is dependent upon, or incidental or preparatory to, other work which, by virtue of sub-paragraph (a), is functional work in relation to that council; and work carried out as mentioned in sub-paragraph (b) shall be treated as carried out by the council.
