If the other end of the cable was *completely* removed from the CU, it's not part of the electrical installation at all.

I'm not /sure/ that is a complete answer given the way "electrical

BS7671: Electrical installation (abbr: Installation). An assembly of

SI 2010/2214 (applied by SI 2020/312): €śelectrical installation€ť means
fixed electrical cables or fixed electrical equipment located on the
consumer's side of the electricity supply meter;
