Laguna II P2 Handbrake

Hi just bought a 57 plate 2.0 dci Dynamique hatch a week ago. The car was supposed to have gone through its MOT with no advisories but I found a badly warped tyre the same day. As tyres are a bit of a grey area I made the decision to fit four new tyres as the rest were cheap and nasty and quite worn. While I was waiting at the tyre bay the fitter called me over to show me that the handbrake on the n/s wasn't on at all, the o/s was holding fine. You can turn the wheel with one finger. I'm an ex mechanic but can't do much of my own work due to illness, however I was wondering if there is anything obvious that would cause one side not to work other than the obvious seized cable/caliper? It's the electric handbrake type and there are no dash warnings etc. I have been in touch with VOSA as the MOT station is not answering their phone, I just wanted my facts before things go further.
