Induction Hob and Oven

The purpose of the MCB's is to protect the cable. As long as the MCB is less than the current carrying capacity of the cable then you are okay

Stick the Hob on the 10mm cable 45 Amp circuit. via a cooker connection unit

But then the smaller fly lead cable from the Hob will only be protected by the 45A mcb? Is this ok as it mi's state a 30A connection?

I have decided I will change the 32A 6mm cable cooker outlet to a 1G 13A Socket for the oven, but still think I need to down rate the 40A mcb for the hob outlet to a 32A to protect the hob and hob flylead?
According to the MI you should but then you're back to notification.

Is it too late to connect the hob to the 6mm² cable and fit a socket, or FCU, to the 10mm²? It will be awkward with such a large cable but should be possible.

Sorted my mate the sparks (well friend of a friend) is goint to change the mcb from 40A to 32A on the 10mm cable and then I am going to fit a 1G socket in place of the cooker outlet on the 6mm cable meaning I can just plug in a 13A fuse plug. Phew! Thanks for your help.
