I am designing a wall light . Can the cable leads from the fitting be connected to the mains wiring inside the wall cavity or does the connection have to be within a terminal housing as part of the fitting?

Not all walls have a cavity, even if it does, any cable joint needs to be within an enclosure.
the simplest way to achieve this is normally to enclose the terminals within the fitting.
