No. 426 of 1882.—Petition of Toha and 29 Others.
Petitioners state that a road is being carried through their village at Mohaka, cutting even through their meeting-houses, and that they can get no redress from the County Council, nor even information as to compensation. They say they have been always loyal. They pray for inquiry and redress.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That this was before the Committee and reported upon on the 29th June last, on the petition of Paora Rerepu and Others, when the Government was recommended to make full inquiries. These inquiries have been made, and full reports received from the Chief Survoyor, at Napier, together with a map showing in detail the various lines proposed. No fences, cultivations, or houses have been or are to be interfered with. The County Council has to form and maintain the road. The Committee has no recommendation to make.
