Report on the Petition or Hoani Turi te Whatahoro and Another.
Petitioners state that land belonging to them was included in land sold by the Government to Robert Bidwill, of Pihautea, Wairarapa. They pray that the matter be investigated, with a view to the recovery of their land.
I am directed to report as follows:—That it appears probable, from evidence taken by the Committee, that an error has been committed in surveying the boundary of the land referred to in the petition. The Committee recommend that an inquiry be made by the Government, without unnecessary delay, with a view to a remedy being provided, in case it should be proved that injury has been inflicted on the petitioners.
