I have just moved into a new house and need to wire in a new light I bought from B&Q. The fitting on the ceiling upstairs looks like the attached image. Am I right in thinking I just need to insert the wires into this existing fitting on the right and left hand side then wire the earth wire from the fitting in the image to the new light?

Best advice is get a sparky in mate, there's more to doing this correctly and safely than bunging a few wires in
