Hi chaps,

I'm wanting to add a couple of wall lights in my dining room, which currently only has a single pendant which is wired through a junction box some where, now do wall lights require a neutral? If so what's the easiest way to get a neutral to switch? I know I will have to swap the current 1 gang switch for a 2 gang switch obv. Thanks.

You could always take a S/L, N and CPC from the ceiling light, to your new wall lights, wont need to change the switch then.

You don't know if your lights require a neutral or not.
maybe he meant if he needed a N at the switch.as walllights are best looped at switch due to lack of space th loop at fittings. OP wasn't clear.
