Fusion, if you intend on installing a new set of tails into the henley blocks, you need to be aware that the maximum run for mains tails is only 3m. You could always fit an fused isolator next to the henley blocks, and come from that using swa or twin pvc etc to the new board..:)

Depends what your calcs have given.

Personally 16mm would be the way to go.

Better to have too much capacity than not enough.
