Nope doesn't make sense to me either, in fact i totally agree with you Steve. I have had a mechanic doing wheel bearings on it and he didn't say anything about them not being there and he's an MOT tester. Surely if its a fail he would have told me at the time.

all brake discs must have a rear shield or back plate

Method of Inspection i. presence and security of brake back plates, wheel cylinders and callipers


Reason for rejection i. a brake back plate, wheel cylinder or calliper securing device loose, missing or excessively deteriorated

This must apply to rear brakes as the back plate is the only means of securing the brake shoes. What purpose does the front plate serve? None that i can see in my opinion
