Petitioner, complains that he and his people have been deprived of their land by the Land Court which sat at Waitara on the 5th June. 1882. He prays that the Poutama case may be reheard.
I am directed to report as follows:—
The Committee has been informed that this matter is now under the consideration of the Chief Judge of the Native Land Court, and, as it is one that can be decided only by him, the Committee has no recommendation to make,
No. 362 of 1882.—Pukapuka-inoi a Tupoki Ngapiko.
E Whakahe ana te kai-pitihana mo te rironga o te whenua o ratou ko tona iwi i te Poari Whenua i hui ki Waitara i te 5 o Hune, 1882. E inoi ana ia kia whakawa tuaruatia ano a Poutama.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—
Kua whakaaturia mai ki te Komiti ko tenei mea i naianei kei te whiriwhiria e Te Tumuaki o te Kooti Whenua Maori, a mana anake hoki e taea ai; heoi kaore he kupu a te Komiti.
