Electric hand brake, MOT failure.

Hi again.
Due to my newbie incompetence Iíve c**ked up the title my first post
so Iím starting a new one.
Same context but DIFFERENT title.

Hi everyone.

This is my first post so please be gentle with me.

I have a laguna estate 2.0 dCi. 05/55. With the electric hand brake.

I thought everything was ok so took it for its MOT
yesterday, five days before it runs out.
It failedÖ..The reason for failure is down as; Park brake efficiency is 13%.
Should the efficiency be 25% or is it 16%?
Any ideas on how to get better efficiency, quickly, as I only have a couple of days before
the MOT expires?

Any help/advice will be much appreciated.
