    Hi

    I will be wiring a 2 way switch with florescent lighting, on your two way switch diagram does the circuit cable go to the lights or the mains..

    If it goes to the mains is the lighting cable missed out and vice versa..

    To make things simple. I intend to run 1 wire 1.5mm t&e from switch to all florescent fittings terminating on the last one. Then join up the two way fitting, will this work.
