Not sure how you can run 2.5 radial at 20A, if its installed in thermaly insulated wall in or out of conduit, max is 18.5A  Shocked.

sockets in any form of radial no matter how it spurs can be put on a 20A breaker if the cable is 2.5mm

normally you would use something like a 80A current rating 30ma trip rcd

generally i would say that all downstairs sockets should be on the rcd expect possibly one specifically for the freezer

whether you put the upstiars sockets on a rcd is your choice

not really the radials are on the kitchen at present and everything else will be new as i wont be touching the the kitchen for a while, so there are 6 sockets in total all running from one fuse somewhere via junction box's trouble is i cant put them into a ring so not sure what to do with them???????worse case i will have to chase out the kitchen walls which are a flat roof with no ceiling access.

What about the rest? espcially RCD rating to what i gave
