Kitchen wiring help

Hi all,

I am fitting a new kitchen and need some advice on a couple of wiring points.

Question 1) My original cooker hood is wired via an FCU on a spur from the ring circuit, can I wire the ignition for the gas hob and the new cooker hood into the same FCU?

Question 2) We are replacing the gas cooker with a seperate built in double electric oven, gas hob and a built in microwave. There is a cooker point installed and the cabling is in 6mm, the new oven is rated at 3.95KW max output with a 20 amp fuse rating. There are no ring circuit points at all on the side of the kitchen where the oven and microwave are going to be installed, can I run a spur to an FCU from the cooker point to power a 900w built in microwave? If I can then should the spur to the FCU be run in 6.0mm?
