A friend is installing a new light fitting over his grand-daughter's bed; it's fed by a twin and earth flexible cable from a 13A socket which is easier for her to reach. The fitting is all plastic but for the mounting base which is metal. The connection block is in a small plastic sealed box in the base. The makers assure him that an earth wire isn't required as it's double insulated but I'd thought that it should still be available, if unconnected - and that in any case the metal base should be earthed although it's isolated from the fitting as it's available for a user to touch. It does actually have an unthreaded screw hole but no screw.
He's fitting a three-core flex anyway but I'd be interested to know the current legalities if someone has a moment to reply.
Regards Ant, and thankyou!
