I'm surprised by the number of installations I come across where 1.5mm T&E has been used for lighting circuits protected by a 6 Amp MCB.

Why, in relatively small domestic installations, would you use a cable nominally rated at 18 Amps for a circuit that most of the time is probably only drawing an amp or two. It wastes copper, makes termination more awkward and costs more.
