Conservatory Cavity Walls


Hi All

I have spent a few days looking for information on putting cabling (for sockets) inside the cavity of the wall of a conservatory, but seem to have found conflicting information.
Is it ok to put cabling in a cavity wall of a conservatory?
If so are there any conditions e.g. does it have to be in conduit or fixed to the internal wall etc?
If not is there any neat way of hiding the cables ? we would like the walls inside left as brick.

Thanks in advance
Mike

Need some more info.

What exactly is this conservatory?
What are the walls constructed of?
Could you describe the situation a little better?

Sure, Sorry should have said i'm in the UK too i guess.
It's about 3m by 4m attached to the house.
The 3 walls are made up of an inner and outer wall of brick with a 75mm cavity. The walls are about 600mm above damp proof / floor level, the rest up is UPVC frame and glass.

Thanks again
Mike
