Do I request this information regarding the clerk when submitting my further evidence to the appeal panel? would this be sent to me prior appeal date?
Well, I think it's in your interests not
to ask for anything in advance.
In my view, if they don't provide the evidence, they haven't made their case for FCO.
Look again at D1 and D3:viewtopic.php?f=12&t=36418
All you need do is ask a few pointed questions at the hearing such as "Don't all these mistakes cast doubt on the reliability of the process?"
The reason I think contemporaneous notes are important is that in Bucks last year the notes were written up by a clerk later on. All sorts of mistakes were subsequently reported on the forum - e.g. the child was given the wrong sex!
How is anyone to know whether a mistake was just a typo, or whether they'd got the wrong child?
Even if they do provide contemporaneous notes, I think those notes have got to show that the process in your
case was applied fairly, consistently and objectively - and that's no easy thing to prove.
By the way, do they use the term "independent review", or is that your wording?

"an appeal panel is independent – a review is an internal admission authority procedure, and arguably not independent.
