'Govt will not pass laws to ban encryption' – Baroness Shields

Maybe

"The government has "no intention" of introducing legislation to weaken encryption"

If they are not introducing legislation, perhaps they have found some old legislation that can be reinterpreted to do the same job.

It's not like there isn't a crapload of existing freedom limiting legislation already on the books, there is a high probability that something could be massaged a little, then it only needs one suitable judge to set a precedent .
