No. 232 of 1882.—Petition of Hohepa Mataitaua.
Petitioner claims to have had an interest in certain lands at Maketu, sold to Government by Hawira Make and asserts that, while Hawira Make was paid he was not. He asks for land or money.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the Committee has no information before it to warrant advising to go behind the awards of the Compensation Court.
The subject of how to deal with special claims must be left to the consideration of the Government.
