What do i need in place to have electric cooker installed

Previously had a gas cooker but have been bought a new electric cooker. I have 2 boxes on the wall for electric cooker, one with the switch, but no wires or cables hanging down. Would I need anything else ?

Sounds like you have a cooker feed for a std electric cooker 6mm Cable (Okay for a Std. Slot-in Electric Cooker) U Just need a qualified electrician & 2 metres of cable to go from Switch to new cooker......

All you need is a short section of heat resistant cable (HORN would be ideal) to connect between the wall outlet plate and the back of the cooker. Most electricians would supply a suitable cable as part of connecting the cooker up and testing that its properly earthed etc.
