Most Electricians work using either. Normally most prefer to quote a fixed price for the whole job, and some will itemise the cost of each task on your list.
Day rates are more common for longer jobs and situations where the client is providing all the materials, such that all that is required is the Electricians time.
I don't know about Norwich rates, but in London your looking at around £25 per hour (£200 per day)

Your are looking around £200-250 a day but as stated most electricians would price it as a job.

Typically if a tradesman is pricing from paper he will apply a price per item.
After the tradesman has looked at the project on site he should be able to give you a more accurate price, then in turn a discount on his price per item quote. I would personally always get a fixed price for all of the work required. A day rate does not necessarily mean you will get a better standard of work it just means that the tradesman can take his time. From you breakdown i would want to know if you are supplying the items and is the property finished in its decoration or is this pre decoration. Are the items to be installed as new items that you are replacing thats in situ or are these new items or revised positions.
