Simply Build It

Any answer is a guess and of course could be wrong. However the switch seems to be change over switch rather than double pole on/off so either you will not switch neutral and both neutral and earths will use a block connector or you need to change to double pole switch.

Since outside light likely it will come under Part P see Projects: for more info and links.
