There's no way that will fail a MOT it wouldn't even come into the test over Than if it was missing and the brake line wasn't clipped in. As far as I know it isn't available new anymore but will check tonight to make sure I just repainted mine

Part number is ABC450080 - Crossmember - rear front sidemember. According to mgroverpartfinder, it is available to order from any XPart agent/XPart AutoService Centre, but costs nearly 50 - unless it has rusted away completely in places, I would do as John suggests, and simply repaint it. They are a bit of awkward to get out, and it is difficult to release ther clips holding the brake pipes without breaking them.
