Junction box for oven and electric spark

Had gas hob and electric oven fitted last year by gas engineer noticed when changing kick boards in kitchen oven and electric gas ignition wired to separate box which has a wire running to cooker switch.
Is it ok for this?

this is normal, low amp for spark and heavy duty cable for oven

THE IGNITOR cable shold have a plug, or fused spur usually rated at 3amp, the cooker cable will have a fuse in the fuse board. It is common practice to take a cable from cooker connection if no other circuit available. Hope this helps.
