Possible HOB swap.

I currently have a cooker socket on a dedicated 6mm cable from a 32a MCB.

A 2.8kw oven plugs into this and a 5.8kw ceramic home is wired in from a 6mm cable.

We want to keep the oven but change the hob. We are thinking of putting in an induction one which is rated at 7kw.

Is this possible or does it exceed the maximum kw we can put on this?
