Angry Drum brakes and shoes

I have had a bit of a nightmare with my Clio. I have replaced the cylinder which was leaking and was going to do the shoes, however I had the wrong ones.
Boxed them back up and now have the 'correct' set.
I'v taken the new shoes out of the box and noticed that the handbrake actuator arm is not on them but there is one on the old shoes.

Now I have done a little research and with other car makes you are able to interchange them between shoes by removing the U clip - Does anybody know if this is the case with the clio?

It is a Bendix rear brake system.

Many thanks!
