Twin & Earth Core Joining
I have 0.75mm Sq T&E coming to a Halogen Light. I now want to move the Halogen Light to another location about 6 mtrs away. I have 1.0mm sq T&E available to use. Can I join 0.75mm sq T&E to 1.0mm sq T&E?

Yes as long as its fused or breaker protected at the .75mm appropriate size.

Thanks Andrew
Yes it is connected to a fused spur. Just wanted to check that the power going to the 400w light would not be affected if the cable size changed from .75mm sq to 1.0mm sq
