Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1876.

[Report on Petition of Raniera Wharerau and Others.]

Report on Petition of Raniera Wharerau and Others.

This so-called petition is merely a letter to the member of the House who presented it, and deals with the right of the Maoris to have their names placed on the electoral rolls of the colony.

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,
Chairman.

25th October, 1876.

[Translation.]
Ko te Kupu a te Komiti mo runga i te Pukapuka-inoi a Raniera Wharerau me ona hoa e 2.

Ko tenei mea e kiia ana he pukapuka-inoi ehara, he reta noa iho ki te Mema o te Whare nana i homai ko nga korero o roto mo te tikanga o te whakauru i nga ingoa o nga Maori ki nga rarangi ingoa o nga tangata pooti mema i roto i te koroni.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei atu ki te Whare:—E pouri ana te Komiti notemea kahore ratou i whai taima ki te uiui i nga tikanga e taea ai e ratou te whakaputa i tetahi whakaaro ma ratou mo runga i nga kupu o tenei pukapuka-inoi.

John Bryce,
Tumuaki.
