No. The role of the Clerk is to record the facts, which are then verified by those who participated in the meeting (or those who attend the subsequent meeting). Once verified as a true and complete record, they are signed by the Chair and become part of the permanent record. If the minutes are subsequently found to contain incorrect information, this should be discussed at a subsequent meeting and the correct information included in the minutes of the latter meeting, which supersede those of the former meeting.
