No. 306.—Petition of Paora Haenga and Others.
Petitioner states that when the purchase-money (£88) was paid by the Government for a piece of land called Awanui, of which he was the principal owner, he objected to the way in which it was proposed to divide the money, and in consequence has received none of it from that day to this. He prays therefore that the piece of land may be returned him.
I am directed to report that 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.
