      Cabling colour confusion

      Hi

      Been meaning to check whether I have a ring wire attached for a while, and keep forgetting to ask for advice. I've just taken it off and there's no orange-and-white attached to the third slot. Nothing is attached. Instead, I have a blue-and-white cable on slot 2, and a solid blue cable on slot 5.

      I presume one of these is for the extension socket in the sitting room. Do I leave both of these intact?

      Thanks for any advice you can offer

      Will
