Default switching 6 fluroescent lights

What a way to start on this forum with what I hope is a simple fix, Hello to everyone by the way

I need to wire 6 fluroescent fittings (each one has 4 x 18w tubes) I have done a little drawing, could someone cast their expert eye over it and amend as required please. I would be very grateful indeed. The main light is using its own choc block as the sort of rose or junction box to feed the the other five lights. I may have to addin another choc block as it came with 3 connections :- earth live neutral



Edit : These wiring colours apply to the UK (United Kingdom)
