HC Deb 08 July 1907 vol 177 c1148
MR. MOND (Chester)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether his attention has been called to the fact that the eight ships of the "Hagen" type are in the Return, Fleets (Great Britain and Foreign Countries), enumerated in the list of German battleships of the line; and whether, in view of the fact that in the German official accounts these vessels are described as armoured coast-defence vessels, he can see his way in future Returns to have these vessels transferred from the battleship class to the coast-defence class.


I am informed that in the German Navy Estimates for 1907 these ships are classified as battleships.
