Report on the Petition of Anaru Makiwhara and 417 Others.
|1.||Petitioners pray that the number of Maori members in the House of Representatives be increased.|
|2.||That the Maori members of the Legislative Council be elected by the Maori people.|
|3.||That Native Councils be established in the various districts of New Zealand.|
I am directed to report as follows:—
|1.||That as a Bill is now before the House having for its object an increase in the representation of the Native race, the Committee do not consider it necessary to make any recommendation on this point.|
|2.||Inasmuch as the nomination of members to the Legislative Council rests with Ms Excellency the Governor, the Committee do not see their way to make any suggestion in reference to that part of the petition in which it is prayed that the Maori members of that body should be elected by the people.|
|3.||The Committee would beg to recommend to the favourable consideration of the House the request made in the petition for the establishment of Native Councils.|

|2.||Inahoki ko te mana mo te whakatu i nga Mema o te Runanga whakatakoto Ture kei te Kawana, kahore te Komiti e marama ki te whai kupu mo tera wahi o te pukapuka-inoi e tono nei kia whakaturia nga mema o reira e te iwi.|
|3.||E mea ana te Komiti me titiro pai e te Whare te tono i roto i te pukapuka-inoi Ma whakaturia he Kaunihera Maori.|
