s1bgs,
You have four individual spot lights which you are intalling in a daisy chain method using twin and earth, they are double insulated which means an circuit protective conductors (earth) is not required. As manufactures instruction state.
The connection enclosures will be marked for live and neutral terminals if supplied. but if they are not a connection strip can be used as long as it is asseceesible for inspection purposes. I'd leave the CPC (earths) terminated seperatly, available and safe. Just in case you decide ever to change the fittings to ones that do require CPC (earths)
I hope you are are aware of Document Part P regarding the installation of new circuits, this does not apply to additions or extentions, take some time to look at project part p on this web site.
Certain test certificates are recommened when the circuit is complete before it is commisioned, this is for safety and insurance reasons. I would always recommend these are done.
