Handbrake holding

afternoon peeps,

i took my misses car for mot few days ago and it failed on 4 things, 3 of which ar easy fixes. the one that is puzzeling me is the hand brake. now it hold on the passenger rear wheel and dont on the drivers rear. but yet the tester has marked it as not working fully. now iv ordered the other bits required for the easy fixes but just wondering what some of you peeps might of thought the handbrake problem might be.

Just had to replace the handbrake cable on mine as it was part seized and not working at all. Bugg*r of a job when you have to lie down to do it. My MOT next week so had to be done. Also some new discs went on as well so it better not fail on the brakes.
