Yes it is legal.
Having said that I would keep her in a 5 point harness. My DD is the same age and weight and that's what I do with her.
It might be tempting to go the easier option for car pooling but if it were me I could never forgive myself if the worst happened when she was in the unsafe (and yes studies have shown that type of booster are unsafe) car seat.

Oh sorry we posted at the same time. Good decision I think. I would just tell the other mum the truth, that you aren't willing to put her in a car seat that isn't of optimum safety.

Anyone under the age of 4 must be in a 5 point harnessed seat unless they weight more than 18kg.
