The Dewalt is more suited to table work and for planing you'll be doing that on the table.
If you are going to be doing a bit of routing, having the B&Q one for lock and hinge and finishing hand jobs and the Dewalt in the table is a good combination.
The B&Q one is only going to take a 1/4" shank bit and it's not really stiff enough for planing. I know they do an 8mm collet with it but you won't find many 8mm shank bits in the UK.
The Dewalt will take 1/2" shank bits.
For planing, get yourself a CMT 806.690.11 bit (3/4" x 2" on a 1/2" shank) from Axminster Tools. There may be other CMT stockists but I know Axminster do CMT.
