[Nos. 256, 257, 258, 259, and 260 of 1882—Petitions of Whiripo te Puni and 96 Others, Henare Hoepa and 66 Others, Reta Teiputere and 92 Others, Arama Karaka and 220 Others, and Rawiri Kahia and 32 Others.]

Nos. 256, 257, 258, 259, and 260 of 1882—Petitions of Whiripo te Puni and 96 Others, Henare Hoepa and 66 Others, Reta Teiputere and 92 Others, Arama Karaka and 220 Others, and Rawiri Kahia and 32 Others.

Petitioners state that the operation of the Thermal-Springs Act has been extended over lands never intended, and that the Act is in contradiction of the Treaty of Waitangi. They pray that the Act may be repealed so far as their lands are concerned.

I am directed to report as follows:—

That the above petitions all refer to the Thermal-Springs Act, and are all couched in the same terms. Being a matter of public policy, the Committee has no recommendation to make.

1st August, 1882.

[Translation.]
Nos. 256, 257, 258, 259, and 260 of 1882.—Pukapuka-inoi a Whiripo te Puni me etahi atu 96; Henare Hoepa me etahi atu 66; Reta Teiputere me etahi atu 92; Arama Karaka me etahi atu 220; Rawiri Kahia me etahi atu 32.

E Ki ana nga kai-pitihana kua tau atu te mana o te Ture Ngawha ki etahi atu whenua kaore nei i hiahiatia kia tau ki raro i nga tikanga o taua Ture, e he ana hoki taua Ture i nga tikanga o te Tiriti o Waitangi. E inoi ana ratou kia unuhia te mana o taua Ture i runga i o ratou whenua.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—

E whaki katoa ana enei pitihana i nga tikanga o te Ture Ngawha, e rite tahi ana hoki nga kupu. He mea tenei e pa ana ki nga tikanga whakahaere Kawanatanga, no reira ka kore he kupu a te Komiti.
