When you say no earth what do you mean?,no provision of earth from cutout, Some suppliers do not provide earth from cut out, if that is the case when meter fitted etc, they should break out the NE terminal (pme) ready for you to connect into cutout,they should also leave the stated nominal voltage plus ze of the supply.

they won't provide a Ze if they ain't supplying a earth.

Correct, all I am saying is if its pme from cut out some suppliers do not provide earth from it, but DNO must provide their earth loop impedance measurement.
