To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, with reference to page 21 of the progress update entitled, Transforming for a Digital Future: Government's 2022 to 25 roadmap for digital and data, published in February 2024, when his Department first assessed each of its red-rated legacy IT systems as red-rated.

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) assessed its systems against the Cabinet Office criteria for obsolescence from June 2023. This assessment process identified 11 systems as having a red-rating. In accordance with risk management best practice the MOD develops remediation plans to address the red-rated systems. As at the time of publication of the progress update in February 2024, seven systems have fully funded plans, two have partially funded plans, and the remaining two were being addressed. As of today, I can now confirm that the remaining two have identified plans for remediation.
