You will have to save the photos to Camera Roll before you delete them. But, keeping only one copy of your photos on an iPad is not a good idea. The idea behind Photo Stream is to easily share photos between devices long enough for you to properly store them in a more permanent library and backup, usually on a computer.
Hard drive are relatively cheap these days. I would expand the storage space on your computer for a photo library and invest in an external drive to store an additional backup copy. I recommend using Photo Stream as a tool to get the photos into a photo library on the computer so they can be organized, backed up and them sync to the Photo app on the iPad.

I agree with you about backing up, so i save all my photos on a dvd before deleting. Had too many hard drive issues in the past on pc's
The problem i face, using wifi on both pc and ipad, is that while putting files on the pc under the Photo stream folder , they dont show up on the Ipad. Should the files be put under the upload folder under the Photo stream folder or just in the photostream folder alone.
I just have lots of work photos that i need to share with clients in person and not able to get them onto the ipad correctly.

Not quite sure what you mean, I'm not sure how it works with Windows, but I would assume to add photos to the photo stream you have to add them using the interface provided by Apple, probably in the iCloud Control Panel.
In iPhoto on the Mac you can either select the photos then select a Share option to add them to a Photo Stream. You can also drag and drop to the Photo Stream album in iPhoto. In Windows I would assume you will have to use the Control Panel rather than simply adding them to the folders created by Photo Stream.
