@Monso I don't understand what you're asking. It sounds like maybe you're talking about a 240V series circuit, but you're confused and thinking a 240V circuit needs a neutral.

comment Is it legal to just replace an existing extractor fan in a shower room with a similar model?
Why don't you trust the Electricians advise? It sounds like this is something they should know about, being that it's their job and all.
