Government backtracks on encryption enquiry
4 April 2001

Government backtracks on encryption enquiry-
Despite accepting its own taskforce
recommendation two weeks ago, the Home Office now says there will be no independent
enquiry into the effects of the controversial RIP Act...."The impact of
the Act should be looked at by an independent panel to see if the government
has got it right or not, rather than whether or not the industry is
happy" Yaman Akdeniz CRCL
