Just to add to the above post - Try writing to whoever organised the appeals, requesting the clerk's notes "under the data protection act", and offering to pay the appropriate fee (usually £10).
If they refuse, ask for their reasons in writing.
Depending on the reasons given, it might be worth pursuing the matter with the Information Commissioner.
The Information Commissioner's website is here:
If you go straight to the ombudsman about the way the appeal was conducted, and he decides to investigate, you will probably get to see the clerk's notes anyway.
The advantage of seeing the notes first is that they may satisfy you that the panel acted properly, or they may even raise additional concerns.
