I've decided to have my en-suite shower room (shower, whb and toilet)
refurbished. The present arrangement has two cord pull-switches
situated in the en-suite, for lights and a vent-axia. The lights and
vent-axia will be updated.
One bathroom installer who I've asked to quote has said that the
switches will have to be re-located outside the room (in the bedroom)
in the form of wall-mounted rocker switches - another says that the
pull-switches can remain in the en-suite.
Have pull-switches been "banned" and has anyone got an idea who might
be right, please, and why?

No, but the switch itself must be outside the relevant zones. The
cord itself can be inside most zones. Search this group and the web
for links to information about the zones in rooms that contain a
bath or shower, there are plenty of links for you to look up.

Yes you are right, although the lights themselves do not require an
isolator, only the fan does. Note also that If it is the type that is
switched via the lights (with a run on timer) then it will require a
*three* pole isolator.
The isolator can be in the same room as the fan however.
If it is located outside the room (hence out of sight of any potential
fan maintainer) then some mechanism should be provided to ensure that
once shut off for fan maintenance it may not be turned on again
