Thank you for your answer I think I saw the cable you are showing on the nearside tunnel, but didn't think this was to do with the handbrake, obviously wrong, when I remove the clip will this fully release the cable so that new brake shoes will fit inside the drum and then I adjust from there, also does the clip go back into the same slot.

Sorry, it's me again, I have now traced cables from the two at the back plates into car, under rear of centre console where they go into a yoke
and out as one cable along the left side of console over the transmission tunnel and into the hand/foot brake mechanism, I can see no adjusting mechanism at all and the only clip I found was on the hand/foot brake mechanism of which to me this is to hold the cable to the mechanism. hope this helps, look forward to hearing from you,
Many thanks & regards
Once again thanks for your help on this, the vin is YV1CZ793731021673
Situation still the same I can't find any adjuster on the cables and can't at the moment see any way to release the cables to allow new shoes to go into drums/discs.
Any help please
I have sorted the problem you are right removed the foot/hand brake pedal assy and worked out how to release the mechanism, am going to fit shoes now refit thats been removed and hope ratchet resets its self will let you know
