The clerks notes aren’t given out routinely, you have to request them: see section D4 in the link below (click and scroll down)
please note, I don’t know how quickly they are provided, or how soon your appeal date is. but doesn’t hurt to try and request them.

This is the Bucks page for making an SAR access request: I think it’s the right one but double check:

Thank you Aethel.
Deadline for appeal is 10 days away - I will try to contact Bucks tomorrow for the SAR.

Unfortunately (via SAR) Bucks have told me the clerk does not record panel discussions, only the decision and then they co-write the notes with the panel. However those "notes" are literally 2 sentences (as I've summarised previously). So there is no way to ascertain how they came to panel decision and hence it does make it harder to argue FOC case at appeal without those insights...

well, you could argue that not knowing the panel discussion makes it not clearly seen to be objective I guess, on the grounds that the decisionmaking process is not transparent… so the panel’s decisions aren’t markeable against stated criteria.

It’s difficult generally to prove not FCO, and lack of information is a big reason why.
