Sorted. Today I replaced all the moving parts plus the wheel cylinders and the handbrake now works properly. I think the key issue was a distorted circlip, which was not holding one wheel cylinder securely to the backing plate, so when the brakes were applied the cylinder was pushing the shoe away from the backing plate, disengaging it from the handbrake lever. Fingers crossed that the handbrake keeps working!
