Fused Spur

I have taken a spur from a ring main socket to feed some low voltage downlighters in kitchen cabinets. The spur goes to a fused switch. The outlet from the switch goes to a double socket for the lights. Can I run two cables from the fused switch, thus feeding two sockets? Everything I read says one spur only from a ring main socket. Would my proposal count as two spurs or is it still classed as one spur since it is only feeding one fused switch?

It appears you have a Fused Spur, so yes you can run multiple sockets, provided, as the regs state, the Fuse shall NOT exceed 13a on a ring main.
