No. 306, 1878.—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 to him.page 13
I am directed to report as follows:—
That this is a question about the division of the purchase-money for certain lands, and can only he satisfactorily settled by Government, to whom we recommend the petition to be referred for final settlement.
