Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1876.

Report on Petition (No. 4) of Hirini Taiwhanga and 70 Others

Report on Petition (No. 4) of Hirini Taiwhanga and 70 Others.

The petitioners complain of the action of the Native Lands Court in depriving them of three blocks of land near the Bay of Islands; and pray either that a rehearing of their case should be granted, or that £500 should be paid to them in cash, or that 200 acres should be returned to each of them out of the three blocks.

I am directed to report as follows:—The Committee regret that the time at their disposal has not been sufficient to enable them to make such inquiries as would justify them in reporting an opinion on the subject-matter of this petition.

John Bryce,

25th October, 1876.
