From Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (2017) companion book:

Abbey Road was fully booked on 9 February so, for the first time, The Beatles and George Martin worked in a British studio not owned by EMI. […] There are three takes of ‘Fixing A Hole’ on The Beatles’ four-track session tape from Regent Sound, although take two is the same performance as take one (CD3 T1) bounced back to the four-track from another machine. CD3 T2 is the unused take three of the song from this night’s work.
