I have a single switch in my kitchen and intend to get a feed from it to put in a double socket 2 meters away but going to connect it my single socket has 3 live and 3 neuteral cables already connected

My question is what is the max cable that can be connected to one socket thank for looking at this !

If you have to many wires in a box usually you splice the wires and come off them with a pig tail. I'm guessing your talking about a plug and if it's a newer plug it should have for holes in the back as well as two screws on each side and you can hook eight wires up to it. If not your stuck with splicing it which might be a better idea for you.
