07 Megane, rattling brake pads

Been taking a look at a Megane today to sort a rattling noise on the front. It turned out to be the brake pad rattling within the caliper. I noticed that where the brake pads slide into the caliper mount there are no retaining anti rattle shims that I would expect to see there. I've been to motor factors to see if there are shims that come with new pads but it seems there are not. Are there actually supposed to be any fitted? If it helps it is an ATE caliper fitted to an 07 Megane 1.6 petrol. I have included a pic. (ignore the fact that the retaining spring is removed. That is not the cause of the problem.)
