Well as I understand it in regards to PGP. If a warrant is issued on one 
of the following grounds.

1. Interest of National Security
2. Deduction or Prevention Of A Crime
3. Interest of UK economy.
4. David Blunkett sneezes.

then a key holder is obliged to release the private key and any 
assoicated keys or passphrases.
