there are other manufacters who make equivalent ones that fit.
May I ask what you are using them for(bathroom lights?)Does the rest of the wiring not also need 30ma protection?

quite often fire alarm cables are wired in fp200 or similar which have an earthed metalic screen meaning that they don't need 30ma rcd protection.

Try Ebay. Have solved the problem of discontinued mcbs plenty of times using Ebay as a source for them. Won a few jobs by not having to replace fuseboards etc

Cheaper than most wholesalers as well.

I would be very careful of who you buy from off ebay for such an important item. There is that much counterfit stuff flying around in the electrical industry, you dont want to be in court and not have any back up support from the manufacture or British standards.

I have bought many mcbs off Ebay and usually off of an electrician who has kept them after removing a fuseboard. I would never buy from an overseas seller and the cheap and nasty copies are easy to spot. :)
