Yes but shouldnt happen - bad design practice. 1 lighting circuit per RCD at the worst.

on a split rcd board if they put both light circuits on the same rcd is it a deviation, or worth noteing thanks

Deviation?

can be argues either way IMHO...

pivots around 314.1 (iii) page 39!

but you could argue if sufficient table lamps etc.. off socket circuits are available..

or emergency lighting in any really dark areas?

Then you have taken account of a 'single circuit fault' causing inconvenience!;\

Good practice IMHO no!

Bad practice IMHO YES!

would I do it... NO!:D;)

BUT!!!

I would check WHY the two light are on the same RCD...

My bet is they have a shared/borrowed neutral!:|;)

In which case it would be a deviation from 314.4,

and IMHO is a more dangerous practice due to risk of shock when trying to isolate one of the light circuits!:|:(
