What do i fill floor in with slc or a bonded screed ?

i have a 2 x 1 metre section of flooring to fill in..the existing subfloor is concrete with a 20mm screed on top, again the section to fill in is 20mm in depth..im told i need a tacky grout cement slurry onto the subfloor first followed by a bonded screed 3/1 sharp sand/cement+sbr 1/1 with the water ? does this sound correct as other people say you shouldnt screed less than 50/75mm in depth ? but the advice to do it this way is from a reputable tradesman im told ? is an alternative to use wickes deep fill slc which does 5-50mm ? as im having some nice floor tiles laid i want my subfloor solid & sound
