Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1882.

No. 430 of 1882.—Petition of Manaena Tini and 170 Others

No. 430 of 1882.—Petition of Manaena Tini and 170 Others.

Petitioners state that they are interested in lands dealt with by" The Mohaka and Waikare Districts Act, 1870;" that the settlement under the Act was not made with the true owners; that the land was further dealt with by" The Native Lands Amendment Act, 1881;" that no Crown grants have been issued; that part of the land has been leased to Europeans, with whose rights petitioners do not wish to interfere. They ask that the whole question should be reopened with a view to secure their rights.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That at the Court held at Napier in July, 1882, the laws relating to the Mohaka-Waikare Block seem to have been carried out, as also the agreement made on 13th June, 1870, and the Committee has therefore no recommendation to make.

30th August, 1882.
