I have a 32amp breaker in the house feeding a consumer unit in the garage. The consumer unit in the garage has a 6amp breaker feeding the lights and 16amp breaker feeding a radial power circuit with 6 sockets on it. Should i upgrade the breaker to 20amp or is 16 fine?.

aint turned it on. i will turn it on when i get the go ahead from one of u lot. it is not got practice to have it as a 16amper
Set up is ok for circuit protection

BUT you do need an RCD preferably at the garage CU but acceptable to have garage feed from RCD side of main CU.

i will turn it on when i get the go ahead from one of u lot

You turn it on at your own risk!!
