comment Is it safe to remove a plug, and wire a light fitting into the wall?
@ArgentoSapiens I intend to use a fused spur (or FCU) and place it below my shelving unit. That way I have access to a plate with the fuse in case anything goes awry. They seem to generally be available with a 13A limit, which is more than enough for my needs.

@Tester101 thanks. So I can assume the lighting circuit isn't itself fused, that this is conventional and that the previous light was deliberately unfused?

Not exactly. The plug itself is fused with 3A, which is then connected to the primary of the transformer. I want to remove the plug. Would these lights require a fuse when the previous did not, or is this just a precaution?

@Tester101 outside of a plug? In a spur then? Here's the product link (this might not be the exact model). Its instructions were a bit brief and I want to be sure.
