If a 1 metre isn't long enough, you could buy a connector like the one below and some 13A cable from your local hardware store to make it the size you want. (Unfortunately the extension socket is totally sealed so you can't just open the cable end of it and wire up longer cable.)

2m ones not individually switched

Not the same thing if it's this one you refer to argos.co.uk/sta…htm

It's a surge protected one [which is good] but doesn't have individual switches.

You makes your choice..........

well they only had the 2m ones to reserve at my local so the choice was made for me - but yes they don't have individual switches

Excellent got the 4 socket one for £4 argos.co.uk/sta…htm last time round and just reserved one of these, heat added

Good deal, a few left in York.

Heat added.

Cheers OP ..... just reserved one for collection tomorrow.:)

I don't recommend these. The switches aren't very good. The inrush current from my computer (and it's nothing out of the ordinary) welded the contacts together - so one of the sockets is permanently on.

Cheap for the high street maybe, but CPC always have have them cheaper

e.g.: 6 socket individually switched: £4.74
