I was aware the word 'minutes' is plural.
I am referring to a report of the meeting, not the time.
Sometimes I feel unnatural to say "Here are the minutes," when I give the minutes to the people who have taken part in the meeting. By the same token, I am not sure if I should say the minutes were tabled and confirmed or was tabled and confirmed.

Precisely.

It is plural whether it refers to a number of sub-divisions of an hour or the record of a meeting.
Thank you very much!
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Minutes is an aggregate noun so it is most times written in plural.

Here are the minutes.

The minutes have been confirmed.

So, what about if it is a single document (a single record of one ) as in this sentence:

In one minute(s)?, it was stated that.... while in the other minute(s)?................

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Then you need to say

eg In one version of the minutes, it was stated that.... while in the other version ...............
