Phil, you must be very careful about deleting material, more particularly when you delete it. Section 77 of the FOIA state as follows:...(3) A person guilty of an offence under this section is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale.
If information is deleted as part of an ongoing records management retention schedule, then it can and should proceed. Deleting information in response to a request is an offence as noted above.
