The NHS regulator in England - the Care Quality Commission - has named the individuals allegedly involved in the hospital deaths inquiry 'cover-up'.
CQC say four members of staff present when the discussion about the deletion occurred. They were: former Care Quality Commission chief executive Cynthia Bower, her former deputy Jill Finney, media manager Anna Jefferson and head of Regulatory Risk and Quality Louise Dineley.
The CQC is facing claims its staff ordered the destruction of evidence in a report which was critical of the regulator's failure to prevent deaths of mothers and babies at a Morecambe Bay NHS Trust.
Parents of a baby girl, who died at one-day-old, have said they are "sickened" they were not told of earlier failings at Furness Hospital.
The health watchdog has named the individuals accused of allegedly covering up its failure to investigate at a Cumbria maternity unit.
