No. 122 of 1882.—Petition of Major Te Wheoro (No. 2).
Petitioner prays that a Crown grant may be issued to him and his hapu for Karioi, and that the grant should contain a clause making the land inalienable except on lease.
I am directed to report as follows:—
The lands of Karioi were petitioned about in 1879 by Kereopa, Hone Hone, and others, and reported upon by this Committee in 1880. Since that time the question of ownership has cropped up. The prayer of the petitioner seems reasonable provided the petitioners are the rightful owners. The Committee recommends Government to ascertain who the true owners are, and have the land granted accordingly.
