Question I have is, is it ok to have x2 ring main circuits on one 32amp type B MCB??

If so does this meet the current regs.

TIA.

Yes I have the regs book, which states final circuits should be connected to a seperate way in the CU. But I've seen so many others argue this is OK??
I'll reiterate, a circuit originates from an individual OCPD if some dipstick has decided to combine 2 RFCs into 1 circuit incorrectly then He / She needs to hang up their screwdrivers, and take up another Trade.

I've never seen many people argue that two ring finals one one MCB is a good idea.
I'm not saying it's correct just saying what I've seen. That's why I've asked the question to make sure its correct.

See description of a circuit in OSG or BS 7671

You could put more than one radial on a MCB but its not good practice.
2 Rings on 32mcb is dangerous are you sure it's not 2 radials?

2 rings would have four wires goinging into a MCB

Some people spur off a MCB maybe it was that - 3 wires?
