>Your argument for Google (or A.N.Other DoH provider) being prosecuted would seek compliance potentially with a prosecution as well, but I am not sure a DoH provider is breaking the current laws.

Well given the current UK laws, it can be argued a DoH provider is an "electronic communications service (ECS) provider", so subject to the relevant UK laws and regulations...

I suspect, browser vendors who include IP address details of DoH servers outside of the UK/EU may fall foul of the law...
