1)
DP = Double Pole MCB  (The main switch)
This allows you to turn off and on the electric supply to your home because this is the main operating switch to control electric supply. remember that immediately switch off the main switch in emergency i.e. in electric shock, fire or  while working on main board. You can use also multiple mains switch if you has more supply unit i.e storage heater etc. so then use a separate Fuse board. 

2)
Circuit Breakers  

Circuit breaker is a device which switch off and on electric supply at normal ( and abnormal) condition). These are automatic protection devices in the Main switch board or fuse-box that switch off a circuit if they detect a fault. the size of the fuse and Circuit Breaker are similar, but it give more and more protection. You can reset it again if the trip ever.
