Do not drive until repaired (dangerous defects):
Nearside Front Brake disc in such a condition that it is seriously weakened INNER SURFACE (1.1.14 (a) (ii))
Offside Front Brake hose ferrule excessively corroded and likely to fail (1.1.12 (f) (ii))

Repair immediately (major defects):
Nearside Rear Wheel bearing has excessive play (5.1.3 (a) (i))

Monitor and repair if necessary (advisories):
Offside Front Brake disc worn, pitted or scored, but not seriously weakened (1.1.14 (a) (ii))
Nearside Rear Brake disc worn, pitted or scored, but not seriously weakened (1.1.14 (a) (ii))
Offside Rear Brake disc worn, pitted or scored, but not seriously weakened (1.1.14 (a) (ii))

Not a bad fail sheet after a 6yr lay up I’d say!
