Correct wiring for induction cooker
Would 6.0mm t and e from junction box with 30 amp mcb to cooker point be sufficient for an induction cooker as long as high temp cable suggested is used between poker and cooker point also 6.0 mm

Should be ok. Really depends on the Kilowatt rating of the hob itself.

I take it junction box means consumer unit / fuse box.
A cooker upto 15kw is ok on 6mm cable 32 amp mcb.
Diversity is used in this situation.
Example 12 kw oven = 52.17 amps
First 10 amps + 30 % of remainder.
Therefore = 22.65 amps
