Report on the Petition of Natanahira Hurupa and 69 Others.
The petitioners pray that the cattle of Europeans should be prevented from trespassing on their land at the Thames.
They also pray that the price of land should be increased to £5 per acre, and the price of kauri trees to £5 each.page 11
I am directed to report as follows:—
That it appears, from statements made to the Committee, that the Provincial Impounding Act is somewhat defective; but otherwise the Committee have no opinion to report.
