No. 436.—Petition of Mangonui Rewa and 37 Others.
Petitioners state that difficulties have arisen in the North owing to the dog-tax. They suggest that the law should be so altered that the imposition should be enforced only in towns.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That this petition be referred to the Government for consideration in the event of a Bill being brought forward to amend the dog-tax.
No. 436.—Pukakuka-inoi a Mangonui Rewa me etahi atu e 37.
E ki ana nga kai-pitihana kua puta etahi raruraru i te taha ki te marangai i runga i te takoha kuri e whakaaro ana ratou me whakarereke te ture kia mana anake ki nga taone.
Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki pene:—
Me tuku tenei pitihana ki te Kawanatanga kia whakaarohia i te mea tera pea e hanga tetahi pire whakatikatika i te takoha kuri.
