Morse Teleflex do a steering column mounted one. Its a bit like an indicator stalk on a car. It is a tad pricy.

I have an indicator stalk style trim switch available. I will go find the camera and try to upload a picture. It screws around the plastic boss of the steering wheel.

Here we are, wires are shot but switch works fine. A tenner and I will post it off. I will put some new wires on it for you.
