    Hi all

    have run a cable for an outside light which will be on a PIR

    I wanted to have it on a separate MCB.
    But all MCB be taken.

    would it be ok if I double up on the mcb supplying downstairs lighting circuit. That’s the easiest and closest contact

    Thanks I’m advance

    1.0mm mcb will 6amps supplying LED, which don’t use nothing really.

    Using the same mcb as the ground floor lights will be fine
