I have seen a few metal back boxes that have no earth terminal lug. Do the regs state the metal back box must have an earth wire to it? The earth on the socket/FCU is earthed to the backbox via the socket faceplate securing screws.
There are threads on this subject already, such as Back box earthing - https://www.electriciansforums.net/threads/back-box-earthing.176847/

It may be prudent to do a search about any question you may have before posing a new question as there is a wealth of information already available on the forum, you are likely to find your answer much quicker.

Thx. I agree with not creating unnecessary threads. When you type in a title to a new thread, the system does a search presenting threads of similar topic, so as not to craete an unnecessary thread. That is why my titles tend to tell the story. None came up.
