I bought an electric toothbrush yesterday however, I don't have a shaver socket in the bathroom.
In my attic, immediately above the bathroom cabinet, there is a little fusebox that the electrician put there some years ago. It is fed from the main fuse box next to the meter, he used the 6mm cable that used to feed an electric shower as the supply.
He ran a 1mm cable from the little attic fusebox into the bathroom cabinet for possible future use. It's not connected at either end.
Would it be possible/legal/safe to put a fuse/circuit breaker in the little fuse box and a shaver socket in the cabinet, and if so what circuit breaker?

It must be my lucky day.
I went to look at the fuse box, it's CEF and there is a spare place in it and a B6 and a B16 breaker lying beside the box. (y)

It sounds like it is a consumer unit not a fuse box. Does it have fuses, if not it cannot be a fuse box?
I've just had another look, It's similar to this. It has an RCD on the right and space for four fuses (circuit breakers)
Sorry for any confusion. I was just using the old fashioned generic term lol.
 
The Electrician you had that did the shower sounds a very competent and forward thinking chap planning for future requirements lucky you!

He didn't do a shower. There used to be an electric shower there. When the bathroom was refurbished, the shower supply was terminated with a little consumer unit in the attic. When the bathroom cabinet was fitted, a cable was run from inside the cabinet to the attic. The cable was never connected at either end.
