We are currently in the process of moving into our newly renovated house. The electrician has completely rewired the house, and the plastering has been done. Only when we went to install the oven and hob did we discover that the electrician hadn't added a socket underneath the worktop for connecting the electronic ignition of our gas hob.
There is a cooker control unit and outlet for the oven, but no single socket for the 3A plug of the hob. I don't want to drill through the work surface and lose the single socket on the CCU. My question is, can I simply hard wire a surface-mounted single socket to the cooker outlet, and then plug the hob's ignition into that?
