Replaced the Rear Discs and Pads.

The rear discs were looking pretty crispy and handbrake performance had dropped...

Went for Mintex this time and Bosche pads, I see they are the same fitment as the Rover 25!

Later Mk 1's had disc brakes on the rear. My 2006 included.

Off the top of my head, they were 27/28 quid delivered via eBay

You're better off with the rear drums in my experience.

The rear discs are well known for poor handbrake performance, in comparison to the drums.

Usually caused by poor maintenance. Drum brakes require little maintenance (none), Rear  calipers and pins exposed at the rear of the wheel require maintenance every 2-3 years. They rarely get it and calipers/sliding pins seize.
