Report on the Petition of Hoani Enoka and 10 Others (No. 2).
Petitioners pray that confirmation be given to their title to land alleged by them to have been promised to their tribe (the Rangitane) by the Native Minister.
I am directed to report as follows:—That such evidence as the Committee have been able to obtain goes to show that no such promise as that referred to in the petition was ever made, and the Committee cannot therefore recommend the prayer of the petitioners to the favourable consideration of the House.
Ko te Kopu a te Komiti mo Runga i te Pukapuka-inoi a Hoani Enoka me ona hoa 10.
E tono ana nga kai-inoi kia whakatuturutia to ratou take ki etahi whenua e kiia ana i whakaaetia mo to ratou iwi (mo Rangitane) e te Minita mo te taha Maori.page 14
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei atu ki te Whare:—Ko nga kupu i taea te whakapuaki ki te aroaro o te Komiti e whakaatu ana kahore kau he kupu whakaae pera me tera i kiia ra, koia hoki i kore ai te Komiti e ki atu kia whiriwhiria paitia e te Whare te inoi a nga Kai-inoi.
