no just drill across through the studs in the center with a 20 mm auger giving a depth deeper than 15 mm from the outer boards for cables either run them horizontal or vertical from the sockets or switches and thats the safe zone
going just vertical only is old hat now regs have changed . you can now run the cables horizontal as well. saves a lot of cable and time. everything must be rcd protected though now . https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=safe+zones+for+wiring&sxsrf=AOaemvIeZbZ2e8qj2pBLxYEhjLwUFG2MFw:1643223394152&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&vet=1&fir=SORkVvQ6Lyr2oM%2CUiluuOXPOpPizM%2C_%3BGwufrT8ccFXK7M%2CUceishAVcZqT-M%2C_%3Bw3PUL1NPTTcIJM%2CUaeKVDNeUw66oM%2C_%3B3Ttb1iTIgQgiLM%2CUiluuOXPOpPizM%2C_%3BatqtT5NtkaPEWM%2COXHdnpmmQjU-fM%2C_%3BAecuAqsPFmaTjM%2CoJdym2mvqDcSlM%2C_%3BDi_4o3bHlwQWTM%2C3Xq29TReXuIAMM%2C_%3B82AH8x7whq5tzM%2C5fJii4LvwhzGiM%2C_%3Bt2DWolCrjpW-_M%2CUaeKVDNeUw66oM%2C_%3Bo-xxlSGnxRI3zM%2CJQjcHsfW9LjLeM%2C_%3B1e0etxGBsxdozM%2CnTdtiKCk10yGVM%2C_%3BVDSoUyFNIy__BM%2C8cEufiToU7mp7M%2C_&usg=AI4_-kTCwrYv-uLOICLE7jh5JlZDPPsXyg&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjAnseVjND1AhUREcAKHZihBJUQ9QF6BAhHEAE&biw=1228&bih=640&dpr=1.5#imgrc=atqtT5NtkaPEWM&imgdii=VDSoUyFNIy__BMThose cables are running horizontally yes?
Isn't that a bit of a no-no?
My mate whose a (good) Sparks always said to keep that you should always have your cables vertical in the wall.
(Many years ago I used to do some weekend work with him doing cabling & first fix.... and we used to drill a hole where the outlet was going and then fish to draw the cables in from above.
I'd not have lot anyone make that total horlicks in my house tbh.
