Lord Astor of Hever asked Her Majesty's Government, inquiried to Lord Bach when all defence computer devices will be IPv6 compliant.

The Ministry of Defence is developing a strategy for the adoption of IPv6. The adoption of IPv6 is planned to be gradual, since the department has adequate IPv4 address space to meet its current needs. Since IPv6 and v4 can coexist, no specific date has been set for cessation of the IPv4 service. New projects have been directed by DEC CCII (director equipment capability command, control and information infrastructure) to procure a dual v4/v6 capability and work is in hand to identify non IPv6 compliant legacy equipment and the implications of converting to IPv6. The MoD is in the process of applying for the UK MoD IPv6 address space to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).
