    ...but it came with a plug and wants it to be hard wired into the lighting circuit. I haven't come across this before and I'm not sure that it's permissible? Any thoughts?

    Cheers

    I think you need to provide more information than you've currently supplied. :)

    I see no reason for it not to be connected to the lighting circuit, so long as the connection is correct and the light is supported effectively it is no different to any other light, possibly safer as it will not be connected to a 32A circuit with a 13A fuse replacement in the plug!

    The switch on the cable will be a nuisance to position sensibly.

    She doesn't want the switch, she wants the main switch to control it

    The first 'funky light' is 12v? What information is on the driver/transformer?

    I was just thinking, remove the switch & plug top and connect to the existing wall light, and the 6amp mcb should be just good to go, as long as the 'tranny' is doing something unusual. :)

    Ah, it's back at the customer's house but it's inside the housing so I probably don't want to be taking it apart...

    Just had this job in. "Please fit this antique lamp that we've just bought, the shop owner says that it's been rewired to the latest standard" - I wonder whose standard. Great looking flex though, it'll look like I've hung it on a bit of FP200.
