No. 82.—Petition of Reneti te Whau Whau and 35 Others.
Petitioners complain that their land at Katikati had been sold to Government by persons who were not the true owners. They refer to their former petitions and ask for land.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the petitioners' case was fully examined by this Committee in 1881, and a report made setting forth the facts as given in evidence. In 1882 a similar petition was reported upon. No evidence has been adduced to warrant any modification of the report made in 1881.
No. 82.—Pukapuka-inoi a Reneti te Whau Whau me etahi atu e 35.
E ki ana nga kai-pitihana ko to ratou whenua i Katikati kua oti te hoko ki te Kawanatanga e etahi tangata kihai i whai take ki reira, e whakahua ana ratou ki ta ratou pitihana o mua, e tono ana hoki i tetahi whenua mo ratou.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—
Ko te keeti a nga kai pitihana i tino korerotia e tenei komiti i te tau 1881, tuhia ana he ripoata whakaatu i nga take i runga i nga korero i korerotia. I te tau 1882 i tuhia ano he ripoata i runga i tetahi pitihana i rite ki tenei. Na kahore he korero hou i puta e ahei ai te Komiti te whakarereke i te ripoata o te tau 1881.
