    Does shielded cable shield need to be earthed?

    Same. I imagine this is pretty robust comms with or without shielded cable.

    Shorting neutral to earth

    Why not just isolate and prove dead, instead of getting dressed up in rubberwear?

    What 60204 says is irrelevant in this instance, though.

    New Lighting Circuit

    What's your electrician actually doing if you're doing all the terminating? I thought from your original post you were running in the cables?

    Ammoed Cable & Earthing Nut - Also Earth To Back Box?

    Nope, other than that, looks OK to me. For info, if the box was metal, then it could be an "exposed conductive part", meaning it could become live under fault conditions (a loose live conductor touching the box for example), and would therefore require earthing.

    NVR Switch - What is this terminal?

    Guards switches are a safety function. Machine compartment door switches can be a safety function. A foot switch can be a safety function. All usually fitted to mitigate specific hazards. An emergency stop is usually a complementary safety function, generally not fitted to meet a specific risk.
