Report on Petition of Nepia Pohuhu and 3 Others.
The petitioners, Nepia Pohuhu and 3 others, complain that various blocks of land in the Wairarapa have been improperly purchased, and state a variety of reasons in support of their opinion, some of which are difficult to understand.
In some cases they ask that the land be restored to them, and in others that additional money be paid.
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.
Ko te Kupu a te Komiti mo runga i te Pukapuka-inoi a Nepia Pohuhu mea ona hoa e 3.
E ki ana nga Kai-inoi, a Nepia Pohuhu me ona hoa e 3, kua hokona hetia etahi whenua kei Wairarapa a e whakaatu mai ana i nga take i pena ai ratou, ko etahi o aua take kahore e marama.
I etahi e tono ana ratou kia whakahokia he whenua ki a ratou, i etahi kia hoatu ano he moni.
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.
