MK2 Clio - Rubbish rear brakes

Recently purchased - Mk2 Clio failed MOT because of binding rear brakes.
Removed drums and adjusted threaded adjuster bar to just binding lightly with wheels on.
Both drums adjusted the same.
However N/S brake lock is better than O/S and O/S wheel is still able to turn with engine running and brake hard depressed.
( Handbrake locks wheels as expected )
Ideas welcome
regards a newbie !!
