    just a note to all you DIY ers in the uk that from 1st April 2004 a new colour code for fixed electrical wiring will be introduced,
    either the old or new colours maybe used , but not both .
    Installations starting after 1 st April 2006 must be
    wired in the new colours.
    The new colours (brown for live,blue for neutral ,brown grey and black for 3 phase ) are being introduced in the name of european harmony,and are infact a britsh idea.

    I hadn't heard about that. I'd best reconsider the mains cables I was about to build!
