H. Goulburn To R. Sugden.
I am directed by Lord Bathurst to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 18 January last relative to the establishment of a colony in New Zealand, and I am, in reply, to acquaint you that he does not feel that he has the power of approving any particular encouragement to the establishment of a colony there.
With respect to the duties which at present are imposed in New South Wales on New Zealand produce, I am to acquaint you that the consideration of the duties imposed on the importation of the commodities of New Zealand into New South Wales will not take place until the report of Commissioner Bigge shall be received by Lord Bathurst.
I am, &c.,
Henry Goulburn.Mr. R. Sugden, East India Chambers.
