No. 335.—Petition of Peneamene Tanui and Others.
Petitioners, who reside at Whitianga, complain that their fisheries are injured by saw-millers placing booms across the rivers for the purpose of securing kauri logs. They say also that the river banks are thereby injured.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the attention of Government be called to this petition, with a view to an early inquiry, and, if there be a grievance such as stated, to such remedy as may be practicable.
No. 335.—Pukapuka-inoi a Peneamene Tanui me etahi atu.
Ko nga kai-pitihana e noho ana i Whitionga e mea ana kua kino rawa a ratou mahinga ngohi i te hunga kani rakau i runga i te whakatakoto kurupae i roti i te awa hei arai i a ratou rakau kauri: e mea ana hoki ratou kua kino nga tana o te awa i aua mahi.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei:—
Me whakaaro te Kawanatanga ki tenei pitihana kia hohoro ai ta ratou rapu atu mehemea ranei tera tetahi mate penei me tenei e whakaaturia nei i pa ki nga kai-pitihana a ma te Kawanatanga e whakamatau ki te whakatika.
