Straw as part of wall

Hi 

Can someone please give me advise on the picture attached. This is the construction of a flat wall in a small purpose built block of flats. This is like straw construction with a skim over the top. The flats are on a stay put policy and I’m pretty sure there needs to be 60 minutes compartmentation for a stay put in flats. Will these wall last for 60mins, or are they dangerous? Any information welcome
