The answer should be in your Standing Orders if it isn’t basically anything goes

Common sense would indicate the 5 members should select the panel

No it does not say put the clerk seems to think it her
The committee selects the members of a panel (any panel) to act on behalf of the committee after considering (first and foremost) if there are any volunteers - don’t lose sight of the fact that nobody can be ‘pressed’ into anything, if there are any conflicts and also if there are any notable skills or experience in the relevant area.
The clerk takes the notes of the committees decision.
