1st thought,

its not really in a zone but its not likely to be used to hang pictures, so real risk is low.

2nd thought

when he refits his skirting, he should glue it rather than nail it.

3rd thought

is the new floor thick enough you could have a void between floor and wall, and lose the cable into that?

4th thought, I'm assuming T and E, but there are cables that would be permitted with earthed foil inside..

1 I suppose it depends on whether you consider a skirting board to be part of a wall (painters wouldn't), and whether the cables have been installed in the wall. you could look at it as surface fix with a wood capping.
3 the gap around the new floor is left for expansion of the floor, cables might be crushed if put in there

Ruffbadgering indeed.
Certainly not in a zone unless 50mm deep.
Capping is irrelavant .
