Car failed MOT 2 years ago for poor nsr handbrake.
It failed again last year & a new caliper was fitted, but handbrake still very poor.
Lever travel was adjusted up, so not too much lever movement.

You got to strip down and cleaned out rear pads , check all moving freely / sliding in calliper , lubricate touching points as needed , check h/ brake cable and h/ brake linkage is not seized or sticking and operating as it should , then rebuild
