Britain's Labour Party would create regulator for tech firms

LONDON, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Britain’s opposition Labour Party would create a dedicated technology regulator to prevent market abuse and look at breaking up monopolies like Facebook.

Labour’s deputy leader, Tom Watson, will lay out the plans in a speech on Wednesday, which also include giving social media firms a broad legal duty of care to protect users. (Reporting by Alistair Smout; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
