Atco Club B20 Special.

A quick question.  Hand controls, should the small clutch locking lever be spring loaded? or does it just rely on gravity?

Kind regards to the experts, Ian.

Could do with an image to identify which generation of clutch lever or Operator Presence Control you have but if yours is just a left hand chromed metal lever with a small locking trigger , it should automatically engage when the lever is squeezed up to the handle bar. 

If that is what you have there was no provision for repair  , or replacement spring available .  Most operators developed the trick of flicking the trigger into engagement. As far as I know, suitable replacement levers are still available from a couple of the after market suppliers.
