Phil, Your first item sounds OK at first, however remember that at this time Saint Gobain have suspended sales of their Celotex products, and the suppliers of the insulated material/panels used at Grenfell have also taken their products off of the market. So I guess there are other materials and some/many who will sell anything but if you want to use mainstream branded products you need to seek the manufacturers recommendations and speak to real expert.
Para 2, the lack of fire stops has certainly been cited as a major reason for the rapid fire spread, but as the panels were hung on the outside of the building everybody assumed that would not be a problem. They simply did not consider the chimney effect which created massive updraught and fed oxygen to the flames.
Para 3, I concur.
Other opinions may be available but this one is always correct.
Thank you for your support...
