Report on Petition of Henare te Pukuatua.
The petitioner states that a sum of £250 has been saddled upon him, and prays the House to inquire into his affliction. The petition is somewhat vague, as no further particulars are given.
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 Henare te Pukuatua.
E ki ana te kai-inoi kua whakataimahatia ki runga ki a ia tetahi moni e £250 a e inoi ana ia ki te Whare kia kimihia tona mate. Kahore i tino marama nga kupu o te Pukapuka-inoi kahore he tikanga ke atu i whakaaturia hei whakamarama.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei atu ki te Whare:—E pouri ana te Komiti notemea kahore ratou i whai taima ki te 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.
