Skirting board wiring

I have just moved into a new flat and was surprised by how deep the skirting boards are. I prised open a top piece (they are basically MDF boxes) and found wires running behind. The skirting boards/boxes are so deep - over 2 inches - that they make quite a difference to the space and I would like to get rid of them and have normal ones, but I'm worried about the wires, which seem to run all around the flat. Any advice much appreciated.

Sounds like its a difficult flat to rewire so they have implemented a skirting board solution for cable containment. Flat could be rewired, but likely to be costly and will no doubt have a major impact on the décor if cables are to be chased into walls etc.

Not unusual if it's of concrete construction can possibly be sorted at a cost call an electrician
