Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1876.

Report on Petition of Matiu Poono and 61 Others

Report on Petition of Matiu Poono and 61 Others.

This is a petition from Natives of Shortland, Thames, in which it is alleged that Mr. Mackay is surveying certain lands of theirs situated at Hauraki and Piako. They pray that such survey be put a stop to, it being unauthorized by them.

I am directed to report as follows:—The Committee find, on inquiry, that as it appears by statements made by Mr. Mackay, in the following telegram to the Under Secretary, Native Department, dated 10th October, 1876, that no such unauthorized survey as that complained of in the petition appears to be going on, the Committee have no recommendation to make.
