We're having an electric towel rail installed in bathroom, outside any zones

It's just above the stairs with a clear wiring run to under the stairs which we've been using as an access void for various pipes/gas runs etc
Electrician is telling me there are regs around where the spur needs to be and need spur directly outside the room rather than in the understairs void.

I've been advised elsewhere that this isn't the case and we can happily have
- Plate for the wire in the bathroom
- running through wall to under the stairs for the switched spur so long as it's clearly labelled

Electrician is saying he wont sign it off if we do it that way, but a friend who is an electrician is saying it's not true..

Can anyone point me to the regs in question so I can show my builders contractor and advise?

Thanks

NB. I'm in the UK, not sure why it's showing an irish flag next to my name!
