Priti Patel: Facebook encryption plan ‘must not hamper child protection’ (BBC)

Such encryption means only the sender and recipient can read messages. ‘We cannot allow a situation where law enforcement’s ability to tackle abhorrent criminal acts and protect victims is severely hampered,’ Priti Patel will tell a charity-hosted event.”
