Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1876.

Report on Petition of Wiremu Puataata and 5 Others

Report on Petition of Wiremu Puataata and 5 Others.

This petition is from certain Natives of the Bay of Islands, who state that they have been "done out of their land" through the action of the Native Lands Court, and pray either that £50 should be paid to them in cash, or that 1,000 acres should be restored to them.

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.
