    I need to have an additional socket for dryer, not going to make permanent but temporary arrangement as current extension table looks ugly. Planned take connection form existing socket and conceal the wire using cable trunking. How easy is this ..? 2 sockets from same switch..?

    Is this way connection work..? I know switching on main socket will on the extension as well.

    Your post isn't very clear. Do you mean that you want to use a plug with flex to feed a single gang surface mount socket? If yes, then provided you use 1.5mm flex then I personally don't see a problem. The cable will be protected by the 13amp fuse in the plug.

    Or use 2.5mm t and e so it could be wired in correctly later
