before I look for a copy of the electrical regulations, I thought one of you might have had the same kind of concern.
I want to add a pair of electrical sockets in the kitchen. There's already a wire going through a wall and running horizontally at chest height for 1 foot to a socket. I'd like to have a wire run in that same direction for two feet further (behind the laths of a cavity wall) to add that pair of sockets.
Could anyone with in depth knowledge of BS7671:1992 or whatever regulation applies in Scotland please tell me if I'm allowed to do that. What I've read so far is that it was OK to run a cable horizontally at the skirting level or just under the ceiling, but what about 2 feet at chest height behind the laths?
Thanks in advance, Stéphane
