    Twin and earth connections .

    Hi all
    When wiring a mixed circuit of lights and plugs using 2,5 twin and earth in a very small ceiling roof space protected by a 20 amp single pole circuit breaker in the main DB.Twin and earth in coduit throughout the circuit .What is considered good practice with regards to connecting lives ,neutrals and earth at the various connection points in the ceiling ,wall, switch and plug boxes.
    Can one use strip connectors for the connections with not more than three connections per strip connector section.
    Should one ferrule the earth or can one use strip connector.Where more than three connections are required per strip connector can one loop the strip connector sections to accommodate more connections on one strip connector.Can all these connections be left open but covered with insulation tape
    Does one get 20 amp strip connectors.
    Can one use 15 amp strip connectors
    for this task.
    I feel things are very vague around these points.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I read the thread on chocolate block and traffic lights which explained quite a lot.
