Don't have access to the regs at the moment but does anyone know of any
wiring regulation that prohibits a hob being connected to a built in
oven? Assume that the cable from the cooker outlet to the oven is rated
for at least the combined load and the that the combined load is within
the rating for the dedicated cooker circuit. Also that the teminals in
the oven will take the combined current.

Thanks. Undoubtedly a twin outlet would be easier, but the reason the
original electrician installed it the way it was is that the cooker
outlet is slightly behind the adjacent cabinet and he probably thought
that removing the cabinet to get access was too much trouble.
I was wondering if this was specifically excluded by the regs.

If the cooker outlet has screw terminals and is inaccessible for inspection that would be a contravention of the regs.
(Some older cooker outlet plates are just a cable clamp for a straight-through cable, most nowadays are connection points with terminals.)
