No. 191 of 1882.—Petition of Horomona Paatu and 8 Others.
Petitioners pray that Crown grants may be issued to them for the following Native reserves:—New River, Aparima, Centre Island, Colac Bay, Paihi, Wakapatu, Waimatuku, Te Anau, and Popoti. They also complain that three acres of land at Otautau, promised in 1874, have not been given to them yet.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the Commitee has examined the member who presented the petition, and otherwise endeavoured to procure additional evidence; but, no further light having been thrown on the subject-matter of the petition, the Committee can only reaffirm the report originally brought up.
