Should my car have passed its MoT if the brake shoes are falling apart?

The garage I use doesn't have someone that does MoTs. So my garage took my car to a different garage and it passed. However, later that day it started making weird noises so we took it back and my garage says brake shoes are falling apart. Should it have passed its Mot?
The MoT is mostly a visual inspection incorporating tests of brakes and lights that takes 30-45 minutes. No dismantling is involved. So if the brakes worked on the chassis dynamometer they would have passed.
